Project —

With a visual tour of the work of classic and contemporary photographers and group discussions, together with Estefania Bedmar, we propose to reflect on the important role of women photographers. Often invisible, women are an essential agent in the history of photography and we want to awaken interest in the legacy we are leaving behind, which has often been denied us. The talk includes the viewing of photographic works, debate on the current state of the sector and a review of the history of women in this profession.
