CONFERENCE BY LIZ WELLS: HIDDEN HISTORIES AND LANDSCAPE ENIGMAS
A conference by Liz Wells that accompanies the publication Campos de batalla. Bleda y Rosa.
“Focusing on battlefields and sites of trauma, this talk considers photographic strategies intended to unearth and suggest hidden histories. It evaluates photo methodologies and approaches to story-telling deployed by artist-photographers seeking to reveal historical sediments and, through referencing that which is known but may not be perceived, to invoke reflection on legacies of conflict”. Liz Wells.
Activity in Collaboration with the Master in Photography at the UPV and Fundació Per Amor a l’Art.
