‘Correspondence’, three conversations on photography through: when, where and who

‘Correspondence’ is an online project created by the Foto Colectania Foundation, in collaboration with the Banco Sabadell Foundation, that aims to reflect upon the relevance that photography has had in contemporary visual culture, keeping in mind historical perspective and the original contexts in which it has been created and disseminated.

The programme will be extended throughout the year focusing on the following three topics:

– the ‘when’ in photography, giving emphasis to the concept of time that connects photography and history.

– the ‘where’, exploring the places where photography lives and how its meaning changes through various processes of re-contextualisation.

– the ‘who’; exploring various photographic practices from the point of view of the image maker.

The Foto Colectania Foundation  will carry out this programme online, which will last until the end of the year. Each section will last for two months, during which two experts in the field will conduct and moderate a dialogue with each other. It is a project that is included under the common theme, ‘Well, what is photography?’, and in which the Banco Sabadell Foundation is one of the main collaborators.
