Every photographic image is a record obtained through the gaze of the photographer, an indivisible binomial established by the relationship between recording and creating.
All along this process the image is composed and constructed technically, culturally, aesthetically and ideologically. However, much of the literature about this medium gives preference to theoretical reflections about the image as a sign and as writing, while ignoring the issues of its context and circulation. The work of the Brazilian Boris Kossoy is somewhere in the middle, in that it attempts to perceive the complexity of photography between representation and visual document. Trained with Pierre Francastel and influenced by the Annales School, Kossoy brings social history and the history of mentalities to the analysis of photography.
His writings show the role of this medium in the construction of the nationalist imaginary among the early 20th century urban bourgeois, by means of an examination of postcards, official books and the birth of photojournalism in Brazil. In short, Boris Kossoy is one of the most singular voices in the recent history of photography. This event will focus on his work, now available in Spanish for the first time.
