El PHotoESPAÑA Master in Photography , in collaboration with the Alcobendas City Council, organizes the master class open to the public, given by the visual artist Soledad Córdoba, at the Alcobendas Art Center, on Wednesday, April 21, at 18:00 p.m.
In this master class, Soledad Córdoba will guide us through the processes and means of construction of an artistic discourse extended in time where the main support has been photography. Photography understood as a tool to pose questions of human existence, to reflect, be and become aware of our nature. Through the projects "Limbo", "Devastation" and "Trilogy of the soul" he proposes a journey through creation, silence, pain and states of the soul. From the poetics and mystique of the image each of his works will be erected, spun from intimate experience and contemplation.
SOLEDAD CÓRDOBA (Avilés, 1977), is an artist, mother and doctor of Fine Arts from the Complutense University of Madrid. Through the poetics of the image, his work explores the territories where the frontiers of reality and fiction converge.
