INITIATION TO THE ZONE SYSTEM IN THE DIGITAL ERA, with ENRIC DE SANTOS

Friday 24th September 10.00 h – 14.00 h

Location: Museu Arxiu, Vilassar de Dalt

 

The dizzying evolutionary process in which technology in general is immense, sometimes means that we do not have time to analyze where we come from and what will appear next; We limit ourselves to letting ourselves be carried away by seemingly simpler and faster work systems, leaving responsibility for our results in the hands of new technologies.

Unfortunately, Current Photography is subject to these advances, and we run the risk of creating a generation of Artists without a Profession. In reality, the basic foundations of this art have not changed, only the way of using them has changed; and therefore, if we intend to execute Author’s works we cannot afford to ignore.

This workshop is aimed at providing enough information so that anyone who has found in photography, a valid means to communicate something more than an image, has the necessary tools to achieve it and is able at the same time to use the wide range of possibilities that new technologies offer us today to be able to carry it out.

ENRIC DE SANTOS AND HIS CAREER

Enric de Santos studied nuclear physics and architecture in Barcelona. In 1975 he discovered photography and left his professional career to dedicate himself completely to this art. Since 1980 he has taught at the Institut d’Estudis Fotogràfics de Catalunya and currently at the Escola de Fotografia IDEP in Barcelona. He combines classes with personal workshops and with his collaboration with the magazines “La fotografia Actual Digital” and “La fotografia Social”, both from Artual Edicions S.L.

Founder of “La primavera Fotográfica de Cataluña” and “Primeras Jornadas Fotográficas de Cataluña”.

It has 26 published photography books among which we can highlight “The Negative”, “Digital Photography FineArt in Black and White”, “Technical Evolution of Photography” and the latest “Digital Photography Outdoors”.

His work has been exhibited in Europe, Russia, Japan, Africa and the USA, with more than 150 exhibitions.

Each participant in the workshop is presented with the book El Negativo by Enric de Santos.
