Photographs involve us optically, neurologically, intellectually, emotionally, viscerally, and psychically. Photographs ask us for scrutiny and interpretation. They seduce us and motivate us. They propose ideas, transmit values and build opinions. We look at certain photographs because they calm us or excite us. Others solve problems for us, or create them. Photographs can empower us, or degrade us. Photographs can foster empathy, but they can be just as effective in distancing us from what they represent. They are memory and forgetfulness. We tend to think of photos as rearview mirrors, but the reality is that photography moves us forward and changes everything.
( Our personal translation of Marvin Heiferman’s text )
Images educate us. This is why we promote the teaching of visual culture and photographic expression in childhood and adolescence.
Since its founding, we have been part of the national Association for the Teaching of Photography (ANEF) an entity that promotes research and exchange of excellent and innovative didactic experiences.
If you love photography, education, personal development and social transformation – Stay ! You have found us.
