Through art, and in this case through photography, our vision of the world grows and we discover new ways of watching. That is why GETXOPHOTO brings back photography to children, because an initiative promoting new supports for images must have a pedagogical space to bring photography closer to children.
During last edition we worked with the children of San Nikolas school, in Algorta. We shared with them some images which will be part of the program of GETXOPHOTO. Their view and interpretation was free. The children, in the second year of primary school, had never seen these images before, and they had no idea about the story behind them. The told us, through texts, drawings and recordings, what they saw, perceived and felt.
