Bela Adler and Salvador Fresneda are a couple of Catalan photographers based between Barcelona and New York. They met in 1989 in a Duane Michals seminar. Two years later they started working together on a project assigned by Camper (The Spanish shoe company). Bela has a degree in Graphic Design. She studied Fine Arts and Art History at the University of Barcelona. She also studied at Berkeley in the Fine Art Department.
Salvador is a self-made man, with a special gift for lighting and space. He also went through graphic design and attended a photography school in Barcelona. Actually, he combines photography with industrial and interior design. He is, so to say an industrial archaeologist. He finds impressive industrial objects in markets and then transforms, rents or uses them for his own productions.
Some of their clients include Burberry, Vanity Fair, Loewe, Cortefiel, Caroche, Levi's, Gap, Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdales, Anthropologie, Elizabeth Arden, Nordstrom, Zara, Spanish Vogue, Elle (Dutch), GQ, BMW, Dewars, Fiat, Nissan, Erickson, and Nike.
