Juan Millás (Madrid, 1975) combines his freelance work in editorial photography with his own photo projects, which often explore the historic and aesthetic facets of the medium. As a high school student, he was impacted by the unusual character of photography, which motivated him to study Art History at the UAM in Madrid (B.A., 2003) while at the same time, he completed his Masters in Photography Fellowship at EFTI (2002). Millás has collaborated with different publications such as El País Semanal, XL Semanal, Marie Claire, Tráveler and Yo Dona. Together with 12 other photographers, he co-founded the NOPHOTO collective in 2005, developing photography projects awarded at ARCO 06 and PHotoEspaña 06, among others that have been highly acclaimed in Spain and abroad over the past decade. In 2008, Millás was nominated for the KLM Paul Huf International Photography Award (FOAM, Amsterdam) and was chosen by the Fotomuseum Winterthur (Switzerland) to participate in Plat(t)form 08. Highlighted among his projects are the monograph ‘Península’ with co-author Eduardo Nave (Honorable Mention, Editorial RM PhotoBook Prize), ‘This Is Spain’ (VEGAP and FotoPres Grants), ‘El último verano’ / The Last Summer, and ‘A Grove of Trees from a Point of View.’ Currently, Millás is also the editor and co-founder of the publication DÚO, an instructor at the TAI School in Madrid, and collaborates with Lens Visual Arts School in Madrid and the IED Madrid Istituto Europeo di Design.
