Jon Uriarte, Photographers Gallery

Guest Professor, leads the workshop Photobook

He studied photography at the Institut d’Estudis Fotogràfics de Catalunya and at the International Center of Photography in New York, as well as a master’s degree in Artistic Projects and Theories from PhotoEspaña and the Universidad Europea de Madrid. He has exhibited in various art centers and galleries, both in collective and individual shows, among which are La Casa Encendida in Madrid, the Koldo Mitxelena in Donostia, Studio 304 in New York, the HBC center in Berlin and the Sala d’Art Jove in Barcelona.

He was the founder of Widephoto, an independent platform dedicated to curating and activities around contemporary photography. In addition, he conceptualized and coordinated for 3 years DONE, the project on reflection and visual creation promoted by Foto Colectania. He currently lives in London, from where he combines the curatorship of The Photographers’ Gallery digital programs with the curatorship of the Getxophoto International Image Festival.

“The photography book is one of the most relevant traditional supports of the contemporary practice of photography. A creative tool in the sequencing and circulation of images that increases its potential when developed in collaboration between different agents, especially between photographers and editorial designers. In the photobook workshop we encourage this collaborative work by putting both parties in direct contact”.
