During the presentation, we had the pleasure of Rafa talking to us about his black and white analogue period, developed between 1988 and 1998 when he collaborated with the “Travel” section of the newspaper “El País”. This first stage, published in this fantastic book, gathers melancholic and mysterious images that marked his later career.

A real luxury to delve into his way of looking and narrating with images! Thanks to all of you who came to share it with us!

The exhibition, organised by the Mapfre Foundation with the participation of the Institut de Estudis Fotografics de Cataluña, Idep Escuela Superior de Imagen y Diseño, Elisava and our school, brings together the projects “Evocare” by Gael del Rio, a former student of the Project Creation Course, “Ex-libris” by Laura Gálvez-Rhein, “Alerta Mira-sol” by Blanca Munt and “Obscure Presence” by Gunnlöð Jóna Rúnarsdóttir.

The four projects take us to different realities grounded in the memory of the past or in aspects of collective identity. In the first case, Gael del Río and Laura Gálvez-Rhein find in family figures (father and grandfather, respectively) a motif to unfold their personal histories. In the second case, Gunnlöð Jóna Rúnarsdóttir and Blanca Munt focus on these collective histories that shape a local reality and identities.

On view until 16 January 2022!

For the call, Lucía presented her project “Yo te amo, yo tampoco” (I love you, neither do I).

In the words of the author:

“Eight years ago my grandmother passed away. It was that same afternoon that I decided to put an end to my relationship with Alejandro. Since then I have never fallen in love again.

“Yo te amo, yo tampoco” is a project in process that I started in mid 2019 where I seek to investigate those social and family mandates that many of us carry around love and marriage, through interventions and meticulous searches in the family archive, self-portraits and portraits of women who break or make us question the paradigm of romantic love”.

Congratulations Lucia!

Many thanks again to all of you who participated!
