Fototertúlia (PhotoTalk) Hostalric, a town of photography, by Ramon Reyero i Pla
February 5 - 18:30 - 19:30Free
We announce that the next Fototertúlia will take place next Monday, February 5, at 6:30 p.m. in Pati Llimona. On this occasion, the session will be held by Ramon Reyero i Pla, who through a tour of the photographers who have passed through Hostalric will explain his experience and projects linked to Photography and the history of the territory. Its title is “HOSTALRIC, A PHOTOGRAPHY VILLAGE”.
The session will be recorded on video.
Nowadays, the ease of capturing images with mobile phones and tablets, so accessible to everyone, can make us forget the relevance that photography had at the end of the 19th century and throughout the 20th century. The photographs capture people, the landscape and life, moments frozen in time that allow us to recover moments that return to explain personal and collective experiences that changes have swept away and that time fades away, but which at the same time explains who we are.
Fortunately, Hostalric has a significant number of photographers -professionals and amateurs, locals and foreigners- who, since the end of the 19th century, have recorded with their snapshots our important architectural heritage with the castle and the medieval walls, the streets and the squares, and the surroundings of the town, scenes of the vicissitudes of many generations of women and men from our house.
The arrival of digital photography meant the democratization of this new form of art, photography within everyone’s reach And professional studio photographers gave way, on occasion, to other professional photographers, contemporary artists, who also have representation in our town.
Hostalric, a photography village, wants to bring us closer to the relationship between the village and photography, with the aim of reviving the memory of the photographers of the past and getting to know the professionals of today
See you there!
