Discoveries Award PHotoESPAÑA 2022

JORGE LOPEZ. THE CLOTH

El Clot, in Valencia, is a neighborhood that has practically disappeared, of which only the port block remains standing. Its inhabitants are mostly gypsy families who have occupied the floors of the building that were abandoned. The Clot is a documentary and portrait artistic photography project. This work constitutes a reflection, a way of exploring the world and understanding it. As the photographer points out: “I am looking for a portrait that is unwavering yet intimate, direct yet sensitive, objectively powerful yet full of personal emotion, the product of a commitment to people and their environment, trying to represent both their strength and their vulnerability.”

This project awarded in the call Discoveries PHotoESPAÑA 2022 was part of the portfolio viewing of PHotoESPAÑA Santander and will be part of the Official Section of PHotoESPAÑA 2023.

MARTIN CHAMBI. PHOTOGRAPHS

Martín Chambí dedicated a large part of his life to photographing the Peruvian Andes, vindicating the pre-Hispanic past through images of Inca ruins and the portrait of the life of Andean communities at the beginning of the XNUMXth century. In this way, Chambi incorporates a new perspective into the local photography of the time, proposing a unifying view of Peru and also giving light to indigenist discourses that were beginning to gain strength in this territory.

Martin Chambi. Photographs, edited by RM “collects the most emblematic images of the author through an impeccable edition.”

SELF-PUBLISHED CATEGORY 

GAUDITAN ROSE. TO THE SAME FIGHT

at the same fight, by Rosa Gauditano brings together black and white photographs of the social movements of São Paulo in the 70s and 80s during the dictatorship in Brazil. This edition focuses on the struggles of women and their important role in changing Brazilian society that culminated in the end of the dictatorship and led to the elections for the presidency of the republic.

The jury awards this self-publishing for being a "visual essay that narrates a story that talks about social movements in Brazil, but that could be portraying any movement thanks to the universality of the message." The jury has especially highlighted how the edition is resolved with images that are intermingled on double pages of the book, an intelligent nod to the communication strategies of social movements.
