Online workshop “Read the images. Analysis of the discourses that run through photography ”by José Gómez Isla

El PHotoEspaña Master in Photography, in collaboration with the Alcobendas City Council, launches the online workshop Read the images. Analysis of the discourses that cross photography " given by José Gómez Isla.


This workshop aims to give some guidelines for critical reading and communicative competence to make adequate interpretations around the different discourses that have passed through photography.


There has been much debate about whether photography, whether as a technique, as a medium or as an institution, has an autonomous discourse and even a singular narrative specificity, due to its particular way of constructing alternative worlds through its own technology. We will see how photographic discourses are always mobile, multiple and malleable: they constantly vary depending on the institution that reformulates them, the technological innovation that redefines them, the communicative intentionality and the epochal and cultural breeding ground in which they are framed.
