IMAGINE is the first workshop of NEVERENDINGPHOTOMASTERCLASS, a project that is developed in different locations, all linked to major issues of the contemporary world.

IMAGINE explores aspects of photographing through the contamination of sociology and psychiatry, and results in the application of graphic images.

“Photography is like an exorcism. Primitive society had its masks, the aristocracy its mirrors, the bourgeoisie its paintings, we – the new artists – our photographs.
Photography does not take reality for its object. It turns reality into object. It regroups, one by one, all of reality’s dimensions: form, relief, movement, emotion, idea, feeling and desire. It is through the image that the world is imposed on us, and the surprise effect of this reversal is extraordinary.
Photography is the medium par excellence of that enormous advertisement the world makes for itself, forcing us to engage our imaginations, disguise our passions in disguise and question our morals and ethics.Through the image the world imposes its discontinuity and fragmentation. In this sense, photography is the purest form of communication, simulating neither time nor movement, operating in total stillness”.
