El PHotoESPAÑA Master in Photography, in collaboration with the Alcobendas City Council, launches the seminar “Personal project. Clash with reality ”given by Rubén H. Bermúdez.
At the end of photography studies, the uncertainty of facing the initiative of starting a project and making decisions regarding the construction of an artistic profile is usually common. Sometimes this situation produces vertigo. In this seminar Rubén H. Bermúdez will talk about his experience in the development of his project “And you, why are you black?”. On how the idea came about and how it ended up in the making of the movie “'We all like bananas”. It will analyze creative processes, reflect on our relationship with photography and on the different phases of projects, and will make us wonder what kind of authors we want to be. The objective of this seminar is to provide the participants with tools to manage a personal project, when they are out of school. It aims to help overcome situations such as creative blockage and frustration, as well as generate enthusiasm, passion and curiosity.
