EN Txema Salvans is a Catalan photographer born in 1971. He chose photography because “it is the most intense way of observing and experiencing everyday life”. Txema began studying biology at the University of Barcelona before joining the International Center of Photography in New York. His first exhibitions took place in the 1990s at the Museum of Modern Art in Madrid. In 2003, he exhibited at VISA for Image. Since 2000, he has authored many photo books. For the past two decades, Txema Salvans has developed a documentary approach outside the conventional photojournalist platforms, in photoessays that balance critical thinking with a poetic sense of humour. His book project “Nice to Meet You” (Actar, 2005) received the 2005 PhotoEspaña award for best Spanish photobook. “The Waiting Game” (RM, 2014), winner of the 2012 Iberoamerican Photobook Competition, explores prostitution and the necessity of desire along the Mediterranean coastline of Spain.

Txema will speak about his approach to street photography, how he starts a project and about his books. The audience will have the possibility to ask questions at the end during the Q&A part.

In addition Txema will take part at the discussion panel after the conferences.
