Are you ready to shift photography from two to three dimensions? We add another dimension to our own photographs and create models! During this workshop, we explore the production of expressive forms that constitute an alternative to two-dimensional photography. We add another dimension to our photos with materials such as cardboards, pieces of wood, fasteners and ropes. We then reflect upon how adding layers and dimensions to photographic representation may diversify and enhance the viewer's perception.

Photography offers a space to produce both documentary and fictional content, and purely aesthetic work transmitting strong messages. It should also be noted that adding new layers to two-dimensional and homogeneous photographic prints or making them three dimensional may create a further narrative or help viewers interpret the components that make up the work through alternative approaches.

Martín Zapater y Clavería, born in Zaragoza on November 12th 1747, came from a family of modest merchants and was taken in to live with a well-to-do aunt, Juana Faguás, and her daughter, Joaquina de Alduy. He studied with Goya in the Escuelas Pías school in Zaragoza from 1752 to 1757 and a friendship arose between them which was to last until the death of Zapater in 1803.
