PHOTOGRAPHER & DIRECTOR, Jazz lover, yoguini and a restless traveler.
Lidia Estepa, born in Madrid, Spain, graduated in Audiovisual Communication at the Complutense University of Madrid. Her path steered towards artistic photography, and she graduated with a Master of Concept and Creative Photography at the EFTI school in Madrid. Her artistic experimentation led her to develop a professional career in the fashion world. After living in New York, Boston and Barcelona she returned to Madrid where she solidified her career working for brands such as Gucci, Vogue, Chanel and L'Officiel. This took her to Mexico City, her current residence, where her career evolved exponentially, and at the same time, she began a new professional phase in film directing. Lidia's feminine gaze characterises a solid combination of the vibrant and the delicate, the play of the strong and the subtle represented in the purity and truthfulness with which she portrays her characters. Authentic and sincere, enigmatic and mysterious stories in pursuit of real and striking beauty. The basis of her work on light, colour, textures, and composition is through experimentation with different combined artistic and spiritual doctrines, such as film and painting, meditation and yoga, resulting in subtle atmospheres within a mystical but real and close framework. Some of the brands Lidia has collaborated with are GUCCI, Channel, Cartier, Tommy Hilfiger, Coca-Cola, BCBG, American Eagle, BOSE, Kate Spade, and Adidas, to name a few. Also, her editorial work has appeared in magazines such as Vogue, L'Officiel, Harper's Bazaar, Elle, and GQ.
