How do we communicate today, as lovers? How is the online environment shaping the way we speak of love, be it through words or images? Unlock the expressive power of photography and embark on a journey through the digital age of love with photographer Karla Hiraldo Voleau.
In this immersive two-day workshop participants will be asked to explore their own love stories, and more specifically, the visual and verbal language that belongs to them. They will be asked to bring in personal content used to communicate with a loved one - be it photography, letters, notes, conversations with loved ones, found exchanged images, memes, drawings, collages, screenshots. Starting from this material, and from references such as Pasolini’s Comizi d’Amore and Barthes’ Frammenti di un Discorso Amoroso, the participants will interview each other about love, delve as a group into their emotional selves, and eventually build a collective, narrative series, able to shape and communicate their stories.
