We share with you some images of the intensive lab workshops that Israel Ariño and Clara Gassull have carried out as part of the Technical Itinerary in their home-workshop in Espinavessa. Two weekends in which the students have been introduced to the work in the photographic darkroom from the photographic shooting in 35mm film, medium format and large format, the development and printing in black and white, the printing of digital negatives and the experimentation with cyanotype.

A lot of intensity and hard work!

Eugenia Vela-Leal García is the winner of the Technical Itinerary Scholarship: Endowed with the 1st year of the Professional Study Plan!

For the call, Eugenia presented her project “Saber mirar” (Knowing how to look), with which she talks about reconciliation in times of pantheism.

In the words of the author:

“Confinement forced us to spend many hours alone with our thoughts, so we were forced to get along with ourselves and to search for the beauty of the simple.”

Congratulations Eugenia!

Many thanks to all of you who participated in this year’s scholarships!

Pascale Descazeaux is the winner of the Narrativa Fotográfica grant: endowed with a course in Project Creation and Photobook Self-Publishing!

For the call, Pascale two projects “GRACIAS X EL FUEGO” and “Maria Esperanza Sara Ester Feliza”.

We show you some images of “GRACIAS X EL FUEGO”!

In the words of the author:

“It takes a fire to light a spark. And I’m not talking about a bonfire that destroys everything, but rather a warmth. A warmth of belonging, a second of not feeling alone, of seeing in the other that what you feel is real. That the questions you have asked yourself (those that, after asking them, you can no longer fool yourself), could have an answer. And that to get there you have to stop dreaming and open your eyes wide”.

Congratulations Pascale!

Many thanks again to all of you who participated!

We are very happy to announce that we are one of the international schools participating in the PRIX DIOR DE LA PHOTOGRAPHIE ET DES ARTS VISUELS POUR JEUNES TALENTS, a project born from the collaboration of the École Nationale Supérieure de la Photographie, the LUMA-Arles Foundation and the House of Dior.

Last Friday, 6 May, we went to visit the exhibition “The Magritte Machine” at Caixa Forum Barcelona.

The exhibition, dedicated to the work of René Magritte (Lessines, 1898 – Brussels, 1967), the famous Belgian artist of the 20th century, brings together around 65 paintings from museums and collections in various countries, together with a selection of photographs and home movies taken and filmed by the artist. 

In 1950, in collaboration with some friends, Magritte wrote the prospectus La Manufacture de Poési, a catalogue of imaginary products including the “Universal Machine for Making Paintings”. This machine would make it possible to compose, in a practical way, an unlimited number of thoughtful paintings. The exhibition is based on the hypothesis that this Magritte Machine exists and is made up of several interconnected devices corresponding to recurring concepts in the artist’s work, such as mimicry and megalomania.
