The magic to freeze a moment, a person or a memory in an image and then record it in a logbook. The purpose of the workshop “Archive, memory and photography” is to understand photography as a historic testimony, organized by Casa Museo Eduardo Frei Montalva every Saturday of October. The four classes are orientated to develop the photography experience and the observation capacity, interpretation and visual analysis based on the concept of image archives.
