CAMPUS PHE07, an initiative of the Consejería de Cultura y Deportes de la Comunidad de Madrid and PHotoEspaña, celebrates its fourth edition with 10 workshops and master classes given by international photographers in Aranjuez, Spain. The workshops, directed towards photographers, artists and university students, offer an opportunity to work with professionals specialized in different areas of the field. The master classes are conferences, which allow the participants and general public to learn about the trajectory of each instructor. This year we are pleased to host workshops by the following photographers:
Anders Petersen (Sweden, 1944). He has sought to portray a human essence with social images since publication of his first book, the legendary Café Lehmitz.
Gilles Peress (France, 1946). Member and twice president of Magnum, he has undertaken in-depth documentary projects on Iran, Rwanda, Bosnia and North Ireland.
Antoine D´Agata (France, 1961). Member of Magnum and author of Stigma, Insomnia and Vortex he has seduced the public with an intimate and intense portrayal of nightlife and street life.
Eugenio Recuenco (Spain, 1969). Fashion photographer, his sophisticated images with cinematographic ambiances are entrusted to him by prestigious labels and magazines such as Vogue.
Daniel Canogar (Spain, 1964). Using digital technologies, he seeks to alter photographic formats by exploring the possibilities of images in installations and projections that submerge the public in them.
Peter Beard (United States, 1938). His true passion is Africa, subject of most his books. In New York he has collaborated with creators as influential as Truman Capote, Andy Warhol and Francis Bacon.
Eikoh Hosoe (Japan, 1933). One of the most celebrated Modern photographers in Japan, he is a university professor and museum director in Tokyo.
Sylvia Plachy (United States, b. Hungry, 1943) A regular contributor to the Village Voice, she creates mysterious images of everyday life that set her work apart from conventional photojournalism.
Andres Serrano (United States, 1953) Internationally known for the polemic piece entitled Piss Christ, his conceptual photographs reflect upon the ironies of our society.
Isabel Muñoz (Spain, 1951) Using old photographic processes, she portrays corporal expression, from traditional dances to African rituals and circus acrobats.
