Hiraldo Voleau

Karla Hiraldo Voleau (1992) obtained her MA in Photography with highest honours from ECAL University of Arts and Design in Lausanne in 2018. Her work revolves around identity, vulnerability and love, gender roles and the mechanisms between women and men. She likes to experiment with mixed media, and often manipulate the images physically, searching for new textures and creating layers.

Her work has been featured at the Rencontres d’Arles 2017, and at Plat(t)form 2019. Karla lives and works in Lausanne, Switzerland.
