This blog contains the results of the workshop "This is NOT a pipe, rethinking contemporary documentary photography" that I taught at Escuela Activa De Fotografía Mexico City campus.

Extract from the workshop's syllabus:
During six theoretical and practical sessions we will detonate a dissident thought of classical documentary photography: why documentary photography is still tied to the truth? We will reflect from the body, the experience and the collective realities where we coexist to explore the stories we need to tell, we will do exercises to start a contemporary documentary photography project. We will imagine new paths to explore.

During these sessions, we will also embark on a journey hand in hand with Latin American visual storytellers to understand our current concerns, the transformations of the medium and the importance of the diversity of stories in our territory.This diploma course is an opportunity to recognize how the urgent crosses us and find new narrative strategies that allow us to rewrite history, our own.
