Santander, Spain, 1975.
Lives and works in Seville.
He studied architecture at the University of Seville, a field to which he continues to be linked as a lecturer at the School of Architecture of the University of Malaga. The interpretation of landscape has evolved as human beings have progressed in their relationship with their surroundings. Nowadays, the most notable transformation has taken place in the way of looking, in the transition from discovery to recognition, until a virgin gaze becomes impossible. The observer approaches the new with a growing baggage of learned and predetermined categories, and can only see what he already knows. In his proposals Jorge Yeregui delves into this way of constructing and representing the landscape and proposes a reflection on perception and the way in which knowledge of our surroundings is constructed. His projects transcend the aesthetics of the landscape
to delve into the confluence of natural, cultural and social conditioning factors that shape it. Jorge Yeregui was awarded the Botín Foundation Visual Arts Scholarship in 2015 and the Casa Velázquez Scholarship in 2013-2014; the 2011 Pilar Citoler International Contemporary Photography Prize, with a work belonging to the Paisajes Mínimos Series, because it "forms a conceptual exploration of the symbolic value acquired by nature in the contemporary city", according to the jury; the residency scholarship at the Spanish Academy in Rome, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and at the Spanish College in Paris, Ministry of Culture. His solo exhibitions include: Tabacalera Promoción del Arte, Madrid; Centro Andaluz de Arte Contemporáneo, Seville; Centro de Fotografía de la Universidad de Salamanca; Centro José Guerrero, Granada; Colegio de España en París...
He has participated in international exhibitions in venues such as the Centro de la Imagen, Mexico DF; the Medellín Architecture Biennial, Colombia; Instituto Cervantes, Chicago; Festival Internazionale di Roma; Instituto Cervantes, Beijing; Pingyao International Photography Festival; Arts Santa Mònica, Barcelona; Matadero, Madrid; DA2, Salamanca; Centro Atlántico de Arte Moderno (Las Palmas de Gran Canarias); Le Château d'Eau de Toulouse and Winterthur Fotomuseum (Switzerland).

Santander, Spain, 1975.
Jorge Yeregui studied architecture at the University of Seville, and later went on to become a teacher in the School of Architecture at the University of Málaga.
His interpretation of the landscape has evolved as man's relationship with his surroundings progresses. At the current moment, the way of seeing is undergoing a notable transformation in the transition from discovery to recognition, to the point that it has become almost impossible to see with an innocent gaze.
Jorge Yeregui explores this way of constructing and representing the landscape, proposing a reflection on perception and the way we construct knowledge of our surroundings. His projects transcend the aesthetic of landscape and mine the confluence of the natural, cultural and social factors that condition it.
Yeregui received awards at the Beca de Artes Plásticas Fundación Botín in 2015, Beca Casa Velázquez in 2013-2014 and the Premio Internacional de Fotografía Contemporánea Pilar Citoler 2011 with a work belonging to the series Minimal Landscapes, which the judges concluded "conforms a conceptual exploration regarding the symbolic value that nature adheres in the contemporary city".
