From the mid nineties photography reached a status, as an artistic medium, comparable to other canonical media and subsequently today our students enjoy far advantageous conditions to disseminate their work than in the past. Having analyzed the current situation and the experiences from previous years, the board of directors of the master has undertaken the task to develop a serious and consistent challenge aiming to generate platforms to promote the most interesting and rigorous works by our students, and to make real one of our institutional commitments: to do our best to make their projects acquire the visibility that they deserve and successfully insert them in the hard and complex world of art. For that reason, we require that they approach their projects with a high-quality conceptualization as well as a suitable execution, meaning the optimal finish of their photographs and the professionalism of their mountings and framings.
We intend that by means of exhibitions like this one in camara oscura our students, being able to see their works in an exhibition space, may reflect upon the content and the articulation of a discourse and that they serve as an encouragement to the other students who were not able to complete their projects yet. Once again we come back to the camara oscura gallery in order to present two exhibition projects and one photobook which, in our opinion and as we point out further, are works that we could include in the scope of a new documentary photography and that aspire to be truly promising.
