The best photography books of the year

The book Soy Adolescente Y Qué Más? [I’m a teenager, so what else?] published by PHREE, is part of the exhibition of the best photography books of the year in PHotoESPAÑA.

Nearly a hundred books make up this exhibition with which PHotoESPAÑA wishes to recognise once again the great work carried out by the publishing industry for the dissemination of photography.

In recent years, photography books have become a collector’s item for lovers of the medium and a format in which, thanks to the conceptual and creative possibilities it offers, more and more authors rely on to communicate and enrich their projects.

With the aim of supporting publishing production, PHotoESPAÑA has been awarding the Prize for the Best Photography Book of the Year since its inception in 1998, in three different categories: national, international and self-published. This exhibition is made up of the finalist publications competing for these awards, which are decided by a committee of experts made up of professionals from the industry. In addition, in each edition the Festival also recognises the work of an Outstanding Publisher of the Year.

Venue: Fernán Gómez. Centro Cultural de la Villa. Plaza de Colón, 4. Madrid.

Sobre Soy adolescente, ¿y qué más?

Soy Adolescente y qué mas? [I’m a teenager, so what else?] is a multidisciplinary and collective project whose mission is to create a space for close observation, without prior conditioning, of the complexity of the most creative period of our lives.

In the process we have counted on the active collaboration of the students of: C.E.I.P.S.O Miguel de Cervantes, Alcorcón; I.E.S. SIGLO XXI, Leganés; I.E.S. Federico García Lorca, Las Rozas and I.E.S. Barrio Simancas, Madrid.

The project uses portraits, landscapes, still lifes, videos and texts to create a choral narrative, where we can explore the collective while getting closer to individuals. Placing teenagers as protagonists, serving as a loudspeaker to amplify their reflections and claiming with their own arguments the facets of their own existence, accepting their lights and shadows.

Soy Adolescente y qué mas? [I’m a teenager, so what else?] has been and is a great learning opportunity. An opportunity for us to reconnect with this stage, where we often feel imprisoned by so many expectations, and, in this way, to understand how we can accompany and grow with future generations.

This project was made possible thanks to the Artivism Award grant from the Bertha Foundation.
