The process of making a coherent photographic project has several stages, each one of them faces us with a different challenge. In this workshop we will analyze – in a dynamic and collective way – each key moment in the creation of a project and will provide the creative tools to face them.
Sunday, October 25, 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Where: Alalimón. Carrer Mèxic 19 local Z – Barcelona
Minimum of participants: 4
Maximum number of participants: 8
We will work around each participant’s project idea to develop and conceptualize it clearly. Analyze the creative process experienced by each one to open new avenues of work and contribute new perspectives on the subject. We will look at the material produced to find and strengthen the most personal narrative and aesthetic lines in each author. We will discuss the possible use of extra photographic materials to add new layers to the material already generated. We will help to preview and adapt the project (editing, narrative structure and formalization) to a possible final format.
All this will be worked in a practical way, based on the projects or project ideas of the participants, taking into account the time of development of each work.
El Observatorio is a space for photographic creation and a didactic laboratory specialized in author photography and visual narrative. A close environment where to meet to experience, learn and reflect on photography and the act of looking.
It was born in Barcelona in 2011 and is coordinated by photographers and teachers Eugeni Gay, Camilla de Maffei and Roberto Feijoo.
With a flexible and dynamic format, it has adapted naturally to the new needs and challenges experienced by the photographic world in recent years.
El Observatorio has the collaboration of the best Spanish contemporary photographers and photographers and today is a reference in the teaching of author photography and in the advice and creation of photographic projects.
Thanks to its ability to generate collaborations at national and international level and the curator of events and exhibitions, El Observatorio is a fertile space that generates and promotes dialogue around photography, authorship and the processes of construction of visual stories.
