Kaylynn Deveney (notes)

Based on the storyboard of Doña Josefa that I drew a few weeks ago, I conceived the idea of a photographic project that takes as starting point this story and builds a set of images that more or less literally fits the story. Continue reading “Kaylynn Deveney (notes)”

Exercise 4.4

I have been collecting photographs from several online magazines during these last two weeks, looking for controversial issues, mostly concerning the Syrian War, the Venezuelan uprising, French elections, North Korean-USA confrontation and Spanish political corruption.

Lensculture Review

This week I’ve received the Lensculture review for the series of pictures that I sent for the Portrait Awards 2017. The mood of the feedback is positive although it insists on the two or three weakness of the series, which it’s great to help me to know how a trained viewer perceive my work.

Sharon Boothroyd (notes)

Regarding her series “If you get married again, will you still love me?” she resorts to fabricated images, using actors who perform their role in public spaces; The use of a public spaces to show a scene of a familiar conflict increases the intensity of the feelings, strengthening the tension between the personages.

Captions and Titles

We are surrounded by information: images and text surround us since the day starts and when we went out to the street. I have planned this exercise very easily: I just get up in the morning and I want to check how the images and texts unfolded in front of me during the day. I have not developed the exercise extensively, but as a small approximation to the stated objective. Continue reading “Captions and Titles”

Looking at Adverts

Of all the Dawn Wooley articles on the interpretation of adverts that I have read, the only one that specifically explores the relationship between text and image is one that advertises a butter called “Lurpak” (Looking at adverts: 3). Continue reading “Looking at Adverts”

Assignment Three: Mirrors and Windows

Emigration has influenced the evolution of many Galician families during a substantial part of the 20th century, especially in the years following the Spanish Civil War: Latin America and many European countries hosted thousands of Galician people. Entire families departed from the ports of Vigo and La Coruña in the hope of a better future in distant lands. Continue reading “Assignment Three: Mirrors and Windows”
