Paisana is an independent publishing house specialized in the publication of photobooks and zines, founded in Madrid in 2016. Paisana also distributes the work of independent publishers and self-published authors.
We have built Paisana based on the idea behind Virginia Woolf’s essay, “A Room of One’s Own”, where she claims that to be able to write and create, a woman needs a fixed income and her own space. We want to translate this idea to the emerging artists panorama, establishing Paisana as a space of creative freedom and support for artists who want to edit, produce and distribute their first publication.
We are Alma, Amelia and Sara.
