Throughout the process the only communication we have had has been through our images.

Wordless dialogues: Africa. The End

Patricia Esteve (ESPAÑA – KENIA)

It gives me great pleasure to present the second edition of “Diálogos Sin Palabras” (Wordless Dialogues), a quepintamosenelmundo project.  Our objective is to elevate imagery to a totally independent and media based language that adapts to todays´communications – a dialogue based on images.

Inspired not only by the surrealist “Exquisito Cadaver” (Exquisite Corpse) method but also by the appropiation tecniques used these days in imagery, “Diálogos Sin Palabras: Africa” (Wordless Dialogues: Africa) adopts the form of a conversation, using the images taken by African and Spanish contemporary photographers to produce a new sequence of meanings and interpretations. The accumulated total of these photos will finally produce the sequence of an imagery encounter with “soul”.

“Diálogos Sin Palabras: Africa”  (Wordless Dialogues: Africa) is orientated toward an exclusively feminine focus and point of view. All the authoresses who participate are currently contributing to promote and to enable women photographers in Africa to become visible, nationally and internationally.
