The Personal Authorship
Keys to improve an author’s personal plan14th and 15th June
Workshop with Jesús Mico. Photographer, Professor and Photography Researcher, Specialist in The Theory and History of Photography and commissioner of exhibitions.
A personal photographic plan is something that can be defined in many different ways. The most usual being that which defines it as a group of pictures taken in a certain period of time and focused on a common topic whose vision, as a whole, gives us a revealing and / or poetic point of view on such topic.
A plan is touched with a syntax, with an internal code which cannot be done by chance, it cannot be naïve. This syntax must make the plan, not only more intelligible but also more attractive and interesting, revealing, poetic and critical. In order to be able to articulate a plan in the correct way, it is essential for it to have formal coherence ( aesthetics) and coherence of the plot (thematic or conceptual)in its presentation.
In the workshop, the idea of a personal plan will be thoroughly studied. What must a plan have so that an advanced reader can consider it positively? What is assessed in the personal plans of emerging authors? What makes a plan successful?, … .
Besides, a plotted and individualized viewing of the students’ portfolios, and reflections on how to make a personal plan (references of how to build, defend and argue such plan before any audience: public, scholarships, gallery owners, commissioners, papers, etc.) will be done.
