I spent the last four months in UK. During this time, I´ve exhibited in an art gallery, I´ve been interviewed, I´ve been facilitator in a educational workshop and I´ve took thousand of photos. I, also, have learnt something: people understand pictures need to been credited. Thanks UK for this lesson!!!!
I can´t say the same for my own country and, specially, for Antena 3 and Mediaset Spain.
Antena 3’s people decided to credit a photo to themselves. Outrageous. After 48 hours, Antena 3 changed its web and gave me the credit of the picture. Thanks.
On the left, Carolina Lapusa, a great actress and a better friend. Some months ago, Carolina hired me because she wanted a photo shoot in a studio. It was an enjoyable afternoon. Easy thing when you have before the camera an actress as bigger as she can be. The pictures were taken for her website. She ended happy, I ended happy and Mediaset’s and Antena 3’s people I am pretty sure they ended super happy. This morning, when Carolina was the main character of a certain new, they took some of the pictures of her web and that’s the end of the matter.
I worked as journalist in a newspaper. So, probably, I understand better than anybody what is the meaning of the immediacy of a new. However, is it so difficult to credit a photo? Seriously? I love my job but I do my job for living. I pay my bills and my grocery with my job. And my job is taking pictures. If you don’t credit them, to me or to any photographer, at the end nobody is going to be able to doing photography for living and you will not have any picture for your news. Do you understand that? And that’s gonna be a huge pity.
Let me show some of the pictures of that photo shoot. I hope you like them.
After three months in UK I am proud to announce that next week I will launch an exhibition in London. How cool is that????
My latest series of photographies, “Women out of Focus”, are part of an exhibition called The Salon of Spanish Rejects (El Salón de los Rechazados Españoles), where the non-profit organisation Lon-art “wants to draw a parallel between these Spanish artists, who have been rejected by their country’s institutions, and those French artists whose rejected work was exhibited in the famous Salon Des Refusés in 19th Century Paris”.
These are some of the photographies from the series “Women out of focus”. Obviously, they are not the ones I am gonna exhibit (those you could see in a couple of weeks). However, I want to share some of them with you because this work is really personal and I am particularly attached to it. It’s focus in the loosing of identity of women. Every time we, as women, loose one of our rights, we loose a bit of ourselves, our identity and what we are becomes blurry.
The exhibition will take place at Oxford House (Derbyshire Street, E2 6HG London, United Kingdom) from May the 7th to May the 12th.
See all of you at the opening 😉
