Humanity in Transition – Sebastiao Salgado

Posted on Jul 14, 2011 in News | 1 comment

Surfing the web, I found the photography project of the well known Sebastiao Salgado titled “Humanity in transition” centered on migratory movements.  Impressive, larger than life portraits of this reality, springing from the will of the photographer, as he himself says, "I want to speak out for immigrants, for those who live in such circumstances, and to speak out to those who can receive them. I want to show the immigrants' dignity in their willingness to integrate into another country, to show their courage and their entrepreneurial spirit and, not least, to demonstrate how they enrich us all with their individual differences." An outstanding, eternal show of great virtousity. I would encourage you to dedicate a few minutes of your time to feel a part, for one momento, of the extraordinary family which makes up Humanity.

11 Quotes on Photojournalism

Posted on Jun 24, 2011 in News | 0 comments

In order to become a good photojournalist, one must first of all love one’s fellow beings. Gisèle Freund Which is my favorite picture?  The one I am going to take tomorrow. Imogen Cunningham For me, photography is the simultaneous recognition, in a split second, of the importance of an event, as well as the exact organization of the shapes giving that event its appropriate expression. The photographer cannot be a passive spectataor, he is not really lucid unless he is involved in the event. Photography involves placing the head, the eye and the heart on the same axis. Henry Cartier-Bresson You have to ask more of yourself.  You have to look for pictures that no one else can take.  You have to take your tools and go further. William Albert Allard A good photograph is almost never the result of chance. Alejandro Pradera Of the many ways to combate nothingness, one of the best, is photography. Julio Cortazar If your photographs are not good it is because you did not get close enough. Robert Capa If you know how to wait, people will forget your camera then their souls will open up. Steve McCurry

Ghosts of the Sahara at Zaragoza

Posted on Apr 29, 2011 in Events | 0 comments


The photograph exhibition “Ghosts of the Sahara”, winner of the most recent World Press Photo, is at the Joaquin Roncal Center from 3 to the 28 May. This photography project organized by Médicos del Mundo aims to translate into citizenship the concerns and hopes of the Sahrawi people living in refugee camps and in parts of the Western Sahara controlled by Morocco. Through the snapshots and testimonies compiled by the Irish photographer Andrew McConnell, winner of the 12th Luis Valtueña International Humanitarian Photography Prize, the exhibition shows how the Sahrawi people have been living in exile and under occupation for 34 years. “Ghosts of the Sahara” attempts to stir the visitor to shed light on the Sahrawi people and their territory so that they are not forgotten. In order to be able to see the photographs the visitor will have to shine a torch on them, which is provided at the entrance. By doing this visitors are invited to become involved and to play a part in ensuring that the Sahrawi people do not remain invisible. Free entry Date: From 3 to 28 May  Venue: Joaquín Roncal Center of Zaragoza C/San Braulio, 5-7, Zaragoza Open: mondays to fridays from 18h to 21h and saturdays from 11h to 13:30h and from 18h to 21h
