Program
We will look at the photographs as if they were trunks, choose what is kept inside and how to look at it. A game of filling images: what one chooses is photographed by all. The first photograph contains only one thing and the last one contains all that was chosen by everyone. We will experiment different ways of photographing, and in the end we will be able to observe that with similar objects everyone has produced different photographs.
We will learn and experiment with composition, placing, studio light and natural light, connections between images, sequences, selecting and printing the photographs taken each day and building an exhibition.

Program The Cliché-Verre process is a combined drawing and photographic printing process that consists in covering a glass plate with a layer of black smoke on which a drawing is made, producing a negative image. Finally, the drawing proofs are taken by contact on photographic paper. Explored by artists such as Millet, Corot and Rousseau, the cliché-verre is an experimental and immediate process that mixes drawing, photography and engraving in a single practice.

Program
Anthotypes are the result of an ecological technique that uses organic pigments obtained from flowers, roots, fruits and even spices.
The process comprises three stages: producing the photosensitive emulsion, coating the medium and exposure to light.
When exposed to ultraviolet radiation the pigments present in the emulsion will fade producing coloured printed images. Since no chemicals from traditional photography are used, the images’ ephemeral character go hand in hand with their creative value, making this printing technique an environmentally conscious practice.
