Once upon a time there was a photobook

Photobook4Kids in collaboration with the

Library of the Faculty of Fine Arts of the Complutense University of Madrid, proposes the celebration of a day to reflect on the relationship between photo books and childhood and to place value, to make known and to mediate to the public the collection of children's photo books that the Faculty Library has been forming for the last few years.

Nowadays, photography is a visual language practiced by any individual and every day. This situation highlights the need to critically analyze the relationship between photography and childhood. With the proposed activities we propose to investigate this relationship, which exists and which is possible, starting from the Photobook, a democratic and inclusive artistic medium, made easy and accessible.

10 hours. Greetings, visit to the exhibition and presentation of the collection by Javier Pérez Iglesias, Director of the Library.
11am-12.15pm. Conferences on photo books for children by Ana Garralón and Elisabetta De Lucia.
12.15-12.30pm. Descanso.

Paris Photos 2022

Ready for Paris Photo!

Go look, search and... sow questions.

Someone asked me  why go looking for children's photobooks at events that are not for children?

The most reasonable answer I can give, which is still a question, is very simple: why not?
