Alicante, España, a 25 de Mayo 2019

En la conclusión de Fotográfica Bogotá 2019

Quiero expresar mi agradecimiento a la directora Doña Gilma Suárez, y su maravilloso equipo de profesionales del Museo Nacional de fotografía de Colombia, el Fotomuseo, sobresaliendo entre ellos; Lou Delgado, Danna Montenegro y Alejandro Jiménez, que me invitaron a la bienal, dándome la oportunidad de compartir mi trabajo artístico, tan centrado en la resiliencia, memoria y salud. Temas a los que normalmente, no se otorga espacio ni difusión, a pesar de ser esenciales para nuestra sociedad.

Gracias Ana María Galvis por el maravilloso diseño, a Marianne Pinheiro por su enorme talento y profesionalidad con las rápidas traducciones simultáneas y a tantos otros miembros y voluntarios que me han acompañado, ayudado, y respaldado en todo momento durante mi estancia en la ciudad de Bogotá.


También querría expresar mi agradecimiento hacia Don Luis Octavio Almanza Quintero, director de la Galería Casa Cuadra que aloja mi obra actualmente y también a las demás galerías, a las universidades, y centros culturales que han acogido nuestra obra, han posibilitado nuestras conferencias, charlas y revisiones de portfolio.


Debo mencionar mi gran agradecimiento, especialmente a la Embajada Española que se ha hecho cargo de mi viaje y estancia posibilitado mi presencia física en Bogotá y que, mediante sus representantes, Don Álvaro Borrega de Sande, Doña María Amado y Doña Ángela Familiar, acudió sin falta a los actos inaugurales de Fotográfica Bogotá 2019 e inauguración de mi exposición. El apoyo a los artistas nacionales por parte de la Embajada Española en Bogotá es realmente impresionante. Ha sido todo un honor y placer haber recibido semejante apoyo. 


La experiencia ha sido sin duda, un enriquecimiento continuo, pudiendo conocer también el trabajo de tantos artistas de primer nivel;

He podido conocer al colectivo The children of dark night, compatriotas españoles que hicieron de la inauguración un acto creativo colectivo entre españoles y colombianos principalmente, y las otras nacionalidades que se sumaron, bajo la iconografía inspiradora de la paloma de la PAZ. 

Al colectivo LOTIER del centro cultural Casa Loma cuyo trabajo refleja un trabajo constante y resiliente que mediante la fotografía y las labores de su centro inspiran a una joven comunidad para superar las dificultades a través de la creatividad y el arte. Ha sido una inmensa alegría poder ser testigo del trabajo de estos jóvenes a los que ofrezco mi apoyo desde ahora y animo a los lectores a ofrecer el suyo también. 

Pude tener acceso a las aulas del programa CREA llevado a cabo por el Instituto Distrital de las Artes, Idartes, genera procesos de transformación social a través de programas de formación en las artes y dan acceso sin limitación a niños/as, jóvenes y también adultos de todas las condiciones a las enseñanzas en las artes. Les acompañan y ayudan en su desarrollo creativo. Ha sido maravilloso poder conocer a sus estudiantes y profesores tan motivados y activos.

Sobre mis ya queridos compañeros/as, los demás artistas invitados por el FotoMuseo, se trata de tantos talentos internacionales que, para hacer justicia a su obra y su personalidad, debería extenderme más de lo que la paciencia de muchos lectores permitiría, no obstante, les invito a visitar la página del Museo y repasar sus artistas, porque, sinceramente lo digo, ha sido un absoluto placer haber podido compartir esta experiencia con ellos y ellas, enriquecerme de su compañía, ideas, presencia, y haber podido conocer en más detalle sus maravillosos trabajos, que son un total placer para todos los sentidos, el intelecto y el corazón. 

Nos toca despedirnos ya de un Bogotá vital, vibrante e ilusionado que nos recibió con los brazos abiertos, con una continua energía positiva y generosidad que se refleja en sus colegios, universidades, galerías, museos y demás centros culturales, activos y siempre llenos de jóvenes y adultos.

Si tuviera que juzgar el futuro de Colombia por esta ciudad y mi experiencia de estos días, diría que este país fuerte va a superar con creces, todas sus dificultades y posicionarse en un lugar destacado en ese futuro que priorizará la creatividad, el talento y la resiliencia

Ha sido un honor haber podido compartir esta experiencia con tantos colombianos esperanzados, motivados, creativos, talentosos y llenos de energía. Un absoluto placer que quedará en mi recuerdo por mucho tiempo. Gracias a todos/as.

Press release

Alicante, Spain, May 25th 2019

In the conclusion of Fotográfica Bogotá 2019

I want to express my gratitude to the director of the National Museum of Photography of Colombia, FotoMuseo, Doña Gilma Suárez, and her wonderful team of professionals, excelling among them; Lou Delgado, Danna Montenegro, Alejandro Jiménez, who invited me and have give me the opportunity to share my artistic work, so focused on resilience, memory and health. Issues to which, normally, space or diffusion are not granted in the artistic / public discourse, despite being essential for our society.  

Thanks to Ana María Galvis for the wonderful design, Marianne Pinheiro for her enormous talent and professionalism with the fast simultaneous translations and many other members and volunteers who have accompanied me, helped me and supported me every single day in my stay in Bogotá. 

Also my thanks to Mr. Luis Octavio Almanza Quintero director of the Galería Casa Cuadra, a gallery that currently hosts my work and also to the other galleries, universities, and cultural centres that have hosted our work and have made possible our conferences, talks and portfolio reviews.

I must mention my great thanks especially to The Spanish Embassy that has taken over my trip and made possible my physical presence in Bogotá and that, through their representatives, Mr Álvaro Borrega de Sande, Mrs María Amado y Mrs Ángela Familiar, has been present in every occasion to the inaugural events of Fotográfica Bogotá 2019 and to the opening of the exhibition of my work. The support for the national artists by the Spanish Embassy in Bogotá is truly impressive. It has been an honor and pleasure to have received such support.

The experience has been without a doubt, a continuous enrichment, being able to know also the work of so many first level artists;

I have been able to meet the group The children of dark night, Spanish artistic collective who made the inauguration a collective creative act between Spaniards and Colombians mainly, and the other nationalities that were added under the inspiring iconography of the PEACE dove.

To the LOTIER, a very young Colombian collective that operates in the Casa Loma cultural center, whose work reflects a constant and resilient work that through photography and the work of its center inspire a young community to overcome difficulties through creativity and art. It has been an immense joy to be able to witness the work of these young people to whom I offer my support from now on and I encourage readers to offer theirs as well.

I was able to have access to the classrooms of the CREA programs led by the District Institute of the Arts, Idartes, that generates processes of social transformation through training programs in the arts and gives unlimited access to children, the young, and also adults of all conditions to the teachings in the arts. They accompany them and help in their creative development. It has been wonderful to meet their students and teachers so motivated and active.

 About my dear colleagues, the other guest artists by the FotoMuseo, only highlight that are so many international talents that to do justice to their work and their personality, I should extend more than the patience of many readers would allow me, however, I invite you to visit the Museum's website and take a look to its guest artists, because, honestly, it has been an absolute pleasure to have been able to share this experience with them, enrich myself with their company, ideas, presence, and have been able to learn more about their wonderful artworks, which are a total pleasure for all the senses, the intellect and the heart.

We have to say goodbye to a vital, vibrant and exciting Bogotá that welcomed us with open arms, with continuous positive energy and generosity that is reflected in its schools, universities, galleries, museums and other cultural centres, all of them quite active and always full of young people and adults.

If I had to judge the future of Colombia for this city and my experience of these days, I would say that this strong country is going to surpass all its difficulties and position itself in a prominent place in a coming future that will prioritise creativity, talent and resilience.

It has been an honour to have been able to share this experience with so many Colombians who are hopeful, motivated, creative, talented and full of energy. An absolute pleasure that will remain in my memory for a long, long time. Thanks a lot.

Quote about the “goalness” in the creation of artwork. by Beatriz Glez Sa


(...) “The new flavour of contemplation, a sense of The “goalness”, a life free of goals, we see it manifested in children playing, (...)

It is the way of the artist in which giving over to the act in which time vanishes, and in which the artist does not impose what she thinks the work needs to be, and rather allow herself to be surprised by what it might become.”

James Findley PH.D,

“Thomas Merton’s path to the palace of nowhere.”
