On Images of Books and Reading

Photo exhibition

29 Spanish photographers capture their viewpoint on books, within the framework of “Athens 2018 World Book Capital - City of Athens”.

13 February, 2019 to 9 March, 2019

The artists propose an alternative, visual approach to the universe of books in the group photo exhibition “On Images of Books and Reading”. Using a different channel of communication, that of photography, the images presented bring viewers close to a brand new register, filled with glances and interactions between the two idioms.

The curators, Jesús Cámara και Ciuco Gutiérrez, note: “Over the past two decades several Spanish photographers have ventured, at one point or another, to approach the world of books, speech and literature through their pictures. And they did so from the perspective of a metaphor, a paradox, or a purely emotional description of writing or reading. The objective of presenting these pictures is to approach the various different propositions expressed by the 29 Spanish photographers on the relationship between image and book, avoiding the literal message and generating a sensation that serves as a point of reference rather than as realistic representation".

The exhibition is organized by the Instituto Cervantes de Atenas in cooperation with the Spanish Ministry of Education, Culture and Sports- Directorate General for Books, Reading and Spanish Literature and the Hellenic American Union.
