Sol Bela is a photographer based in Barcelona. Her roots are in Equatorial Guinea despite having spent more than half of her life in Spain.
Sol Bela's work was born due to the underrepresentation of black referents in the media while growing up in the diaspora; her photography reflects her own story, her surroundings, her blackness and her struggle.
Sol Bela has worked with brands such as Adobe, Getty Images, Dove and Polaroid Originals. Her work has been featured in Vogue and Paper Magazine.
