Final report of the first edition of Miradas Nomad

Between November 2015 and June 2016 happened the first edition of the project “MIRADAS NOMADES”, led and coordinated by Conviven. The project achieved it’s main objective, which was taking on a trip a group of photographers who were in prison, taking them to different landscapes of which they are familiar whith. The groups were chosen by their consolidated photographic work and the sites, which by their characteristics favored the experience of interacting and creating new works and capabilities with the help of the encounter with nature and its inhabitants.

 

The result not only broke the previous expectations of the organizers but brought during the event and subsequent evaluation, new perspectives on these experiences in which art, respect and inclusion are engines facilitators of educational processes, evolutionary and repairers both individually and collectively.

 

It is our goal to consolidate these groups’ work, implementing other similar experiences, and also allow other members of the same photographic groups to participate in new similar projects, since not all were able to participate in the first edition, due to their complex personal situations having a vulnerable situations in both work, family and housing .

 

 

FOURTH TRIP: Departure at PUNTA INDIO

 

Date: 7 and 8 June 2016

Time: 8:00 a.m.

Location: Palermo Headquarters 

Participants 7 female students, one teacher and one coordinator

 

It was a beautiful experience we had in Punta Indio with the project of Miradas Nomadas. Being able to take pictures with the girls of Light Skin again, to remember every step: the assembly of the camera, charge it, choose the right focus and take the exposure time was to regain a space that was lost when I left the prison. The tumult of life outside took me the time to take pictures with the pinhole camera.

 

Interestingly in prison, the place where everyone wants to escape or everyone hopes never get in, is the place were you can create things that help with the pain and helplessness. Light Skin, like writing, was the tool I found for all of it mutates into art. It was very nice being able to plan every detail again. In a world were we are getting used to the filters of Instagram, having to carry the intuition of a photographer’s eye felt beautiful again.

 

Everything about this trip was developed in very different places where we drew our pictures (the patio of 5 x 4 of Section Education, SUM, prison’s pavilions) places that we managed to reinvent thanks to the magic of the workshop. It was interesting to take our approach to a place of great beauty, where we could get closer to the beach or take pictures at sunset in the open land. It was an experience which we hope will happen again.
