Daphne Selfe for Perdiz magazine
When I got this commission last summer I was so happy.
But I was happier after spending the whole morning at her place. Such a beautiful woman
Thanks for your time, nice words and for the cup of tea Daphne ♥

Tomorrow will open a new exhibition in Barcelona that I am taking part of:
A cop d'ull. Recent Photographic Visual Culture in Barcelona
This exhibition draws together the photographic visual culture of the city of Barcelona over the last decade, not as a canon or a solution but rather as a venue for questions: Is it possible to speak of a visual identity in Barcelona? Is it possible to speak of a different perspective based on local photographic practice leading to a series of common and also differential representations?
Divided into thematic blocks, its journey alternates historically renowned figures and creators from recent generations, ranging from internationally acclaimed Catalan photographers to those who shape the image of everyday life in the city’s media, in a narrated series about the social uses of photography in the production of the imaginaries that make up the visual culture of Barcelona. It also includes a large quantity of media, ranging from analogue photography to digital manipulation, file montages and slideshows, and also explores every possible genre, from the photography of urban forms to fashion, including its uses in contemporary art, counter-photographic practice, portraiture and photojournalism. It is a choral portrait which also seeks to encourage debate, thinking and the production of public knowledge about the contemporary photographic sector.
Opening: Wednesday 4 December 2013, at 7.30 pm.

Visual Diary Girls in now at the Städtische Galerie Bietgheim-Bissingen (Germany)
Visual Diaries / Girls is a group exhibition curated by Florencia Serrot. The show documents and investigates a new breed of female photographers. Claiming their photography as a means of comprehending their own realities, the results, which can therefore be thought of in a sense as diaries, are nonetheless thrown open to public scrutiny, in particular online. The internet has provided free spaces for photographers to show their work, as well as less mediated access for viewers. The gatekeepers are fewer, and this license to expose what is most personal has meant a kind of disenthrallment, an emancipatory buzz, that can be seen resonating in the aesthetic itself.
Exhibiting artists are Sara Gomes (Portugal), Madi Ju (China), Helen Korpak (Finland), Manuela de Laborde (Mexico), Skye Parrott (USA), Olga Perevalova (Russia), Nuria Rius (Spain), Florencia Serrot (Argentina), Agnes Thor (Sweden), Sophie Van der Perre (Holland) and Harley Weir (UK).
