The grancanaria composer Laura Vega will be the first guest to go through the tutorial program of support in the realization of projects that the photographer gives Tomás Correa in Gran Canaria Digital Space. It will be on February 19 when Vega, whose catalog has more than 50 works, gives his talk within the framework of the initiative that will take place in June of this year in the aforementioned center located in Ciudad Alta and attached to the Ministry of Culture of the Gran Canaria Cabildo.
Starting from the premise of understanding photography as a language, as a means of expression, in this first encounter relates to photography with the idea of rhythm so present in any musical composition, also perfectly applicable to the field of creation of photographic series .
Correa in this tutoring, in addition to Vega, has invited two other creators: the architect David Martín (April 23) and the writer Santiago Gil (June 25th). It is, in short, to demonstrate that other forms of artistic expression such as literature, music and architecture, also somehow have the same pulse as the processes that come together in the photograph itself.
In the case of David Martín, we discuss how the principles used in sensory architecture do not differ at all from the criteria to follow when sequencing our images in a photographic project. Also, Santiago Gil will influence the application of literary figures (metaphors, synecdoches €) to the world of photography, which makes this manifestation and its form of expression much richer.
