After founding and directing one of the most emblematic galleries devoted to current photography, such as Tagomago, Vicenç Boned opens his new space, again in the neighborhood of Gracia. A new space eminently dedicated to the world of the photobook but without forgetting his past as gallerist.
In Art Photo Bcn will present the project A Walk Between The Lines, a visual dialogue between two authors, Leah Fresneda Valls and Pablo Varela Barcos. From this particular conversation a territory full of trompe l’oeil and visual deceptions is interpreted. The authors propose us to see beyond, read between the lines with their images and look for the extraordinary within the common. A suggestive and poetic dialogue, in which everything can be possible.
Leah Fresneda Valls: Was born in 1998 in Barcelona. Makes her studies at Grisart Escola International Photography, where she begins her first author projects focusing on the poetic values of the image. She also attended a training workshop with Marian Schmidt, in collaboration with the Brockwood Park School in England. In her first steps she performs interventions in Les Rencontres d’Arles and in her city. She is currently studying Painting and Sculpture at the BAA, exploring other means of artistic expression.
Pablo Varela Barca: Was born in 1992 in Baiona, Galicia. After graduating in Optics and Optometry at the University of Valladolid, he began his studies at Grisart International Photography School. During his training, he is part of several training workshops organized by Israel Ariño, Salvi Danés and Enric Montes, in which he explores the expressive capacity of the image. In his first steps as an author he participates in Les Rencontres D’Arles and in exhibitions in Barcelona.
