Based in Paris with a strong connection to Spain, Pablo Porlan worked for 15 years in education and culture where he notably organized events around the photobook, before becoming a photographer. In the meantime, he graduated in General Photography at the IEFC in Barcelona in 2010 and specialized in multimedia photojournalism at the EMI-CFD in Paris in 2014. His time at EMI allowed him to be a finalist of the Grand Prix Photoreportage Paris-Match 2014 and to be exhibited during the Promenades Photographiques de Vendôme the same year.
Since then, he develops his career as JRI Photo by mixing missions in the press as well as in corporate, events and associations. For his personal projects he relies on a writing based on his proximity and empathy with his subjects. He is interested in the issues that shape today's society such as climate change, new social struggles and alternative lifestyles. He joined Hans Lucas Photo Agency in 2019.
