OPENING ‘SAUL LEITER: In Search of Beauty’ exhibition. 28/06/18

Foto Colectania shows the work of Saul Leiter, the surprising precursor of color photography

Leiter combined photography and painting all his life, and continued painting daily until his death in November 2013 at age 89. But the camera became the medium through which he managed to capture and interpret the life of New York City in multi-layered compositions, as well as in intimate scenes, as nobody had done before.

Correspondence 2018
Event

Correspondence 2018

-

Correspondence is an on-line project that wants to reflect on the relevance that photography has taken in contemporary visual culture without losing historical perspective and its original contexts of creation and dissemination.

Each of the Correspondence sections will last two months during which two experts in the field will develop a dialogue. Unlike a face-to-face activity, the chosen format of these conversations aims to refer us to the old correspondence, where there was a time lapse between the time a letter was received and answered. In this way, this program wants to claim the “slow reflection” in an era marked by the “here and now”.
