Las Fotos Project invites you to the workshop “Fotografía: Frames and Ruptures of a History” given by Mariel Miranda. In this workshop, through the revision of works by international and national photographers, we will reflect upon and trace the rupture relations that different photographic practices have historically woven, responding to their political, technological and theoretical production contexts.

This workshop is part of the Festival Internacional de Fotografía Tijuana #FiFT2017, it is free and of limited capacity. It lasts approximately two hours and will be given at Cine Tonalá in downtown Tijuana.

As a visual artist, Mariel Miranda has developed different research projects focused on themes related to the social uses of photography in its relationship with time, space and memory. Her visual essays have been published in national and international publications as part of interdisciplinary collaborations that she has established with research registered within the area of Cultural Studies, carried out in Mexico and the United States. She is the co-director and founder of the Festival Internacional de Fotografía Tijuana, FiFT. She is currently studying in the Contemporary Photography Program in the city of Tijuana and is a teacher at the State Center for the Arts of the Permanent Photography Program. (CEART)
