Digital montage, the potential to expand visual language
1. Photographers: all individuals with a background in photography, both amateurs and professionals.
2. General public: a photographic background is not necessary.
3. Teenagers from 11 to 17, in a single group or divided by age.
4. Children from 6 to 10.
The participants will learn to generate images that show their interpretation of the world around them. The workshop is an introduction to digital montage by analyzing the work of several creators and experimenting with digital tools to extend the visual language of the participants.
Some people portray their surroundings to understand them better, others to communicate ideas, others as metaphors of their emotions. We live in an era saturated with images, in which almost everything has been photographed. Often what we see around us is not enough to represent the ideas that we want to communicate, the possibility of being able to put several photographs together in a single picture can help us communicate better and in a different way from the things made by others.
Some examples of photographers that we can analyze are in zonezero.com:
Pedro Meyer “The Camera's Brushes”
Dallas Walter “Toys”
Maggie Taylor “Now and Then”
Jorge Rueda “Nonsense”
