¡RETRÁTATE! (PICTURE YOURSELF!) AT FUNDACIÓN CANAL WITH TWO FAMOUS PHOTOGRAPHERS

For the exhibition Al descubierto. Obras seleccionadas de The Howard Greenberg Gallery (Discovered. Select Works from The Howard Greenberg Gallery)Fundación Canal is launching the initiative ¡Retrátate! (Picture Yourself!) in collaboration with PHotoESPAÑA.

2 and 3 July, everyone who comes to view the collection will have the chance to have their free, personalized picture taken by two contemporary greats: Estela de Castro, commissioned with the Royal Portraits of Their Majesties the King and Queen, and Jesús Mandriñán, creator of oneiric, almost poetic portraits, midway between psychology and sociology.

Participants will receive a code to download their photograph online after the activity.

 

ABOUT THE PHOTOGRAPHERS


Estela de Casto (Madrid, 1978), is a photographer specialised in portraits. Some of her most noteworthy projects include the Official Portraits of Their Majesties the King and Queen and the Princess of Asturias and Princess Sofia (2019), and “Fotógrafos” (2011), where she photographed great masters of Spanish photography.

De Castro also devotes a large portion of her work to fighting for human rights and animal protection. Furthermore, since 2014, she has built a solid career as photography teacher. Her pictures have been published in all kinds of national and international magazines and publications.

Jesús Madriñán (Santiago de Compostela, 1984) is one of the most notable figures in contemporary Spanish photography. His work is focused on reinterpreting portraits, understood as a genre straddling psychology and sociology. His portraits are paradoxical images that use a classic, almost craftsman technique to make generational portraits of 21st-century youth, providing an anthropological vision of our times.

His different series tackle aspects of nightlife in large European cities (such as Dopo Roma, 2016, and Good Night London, 2011) and in rural settings (Boas noites, 2013), and has participated in both national and international prestigious festivals and fairs, as well as different collective exhibitions.
