‘PLATEA. LOS FOTÓGRAFOS MIRAN AL CINE’ organized by ACCIÓN CULTURAL ESPAÑOLA (AC/E)
PHOTOS DISPLAYED ON LA CARRERA DE LA VIRGEN
Cinema and photography are modes of visual representation that use different narrative mechanisms as their means of creation. Yet a nexus exists between them that makes them accomplices from the very beginning of their existence, since both use the same expressive resource: images. Cinema uses frames in movement to tell stories while photography tells stories through still shots. They both serve as windows to the world, through which spectators enter the imaginary universe generated by their authors. Filmmakers and photographers use different languages, although they are governed by a shared element, light, which artists draw and shape in their own way. The sensitive materials underlying and supporting the stories are also different, although they almost always have the ability to transfigure time and make the efimeral perpetual and the atemporal temporal.
This exhibition is intended to show how some of Spain's most important photographers look at cinema. Their ways of seeing - documentary, conceptual, artistic…- are diverse, although all of them converge, with the creativity inherent in each medium, in the admiration and empathy that the cinematographic spectacle inspires in people.
