They say the best camera in the world is the one in your hand. In this practical one-and-a-half hour workshop for 20 people, given by Lisbeth Salas, students, using nothing more than their own smartphone, will learn how to turn their casual snapshots into personal images worthy of framing. Above and beyond technical knowledge, it is about learning to look, to understand what is in front of us, before taking the photo. This includes, for example, understanding light, because as Salas herself says, "we are light tamers". Her work focuses on portraits, documentary photography and photography of literary subjects. She has published the photobooks Infinitamente serio (on the writer Enrique Vila-Matas) and Rostros y decires (on the poet Rafael Cadenas, winner of the 2022 Cervantes Prize) with La Cámara Escrita publishers. She is a contributor to the Cultura/s supplement of La Vanguardia. She has photographed Javier Marías, Paul Auster, Javier Cercas, Umberto Eco, Fernando Trueba, Isabel Coixet, Francis Ford Coppola, and many others.
