At the end of 2013 I conducted my first participatory photography workshop. A group of middle-age women, with low level of education and income from Martorell participated in the project Coses de Dona, whose results were exposed in the exterior walls of the Martorell market and inside the Ateneu Cultural de Martorell. Although I had always believed in journalistic and documentary photography committed to reality as a tool of transformation of our society, it was not until I discovered the participatory photography that I really understood the power of photography as a tool of personal and social transformation.
In 2015 I created and directed Puc Fer a Milió de Coses, a participatory photography project in which 13 adults with Limited Intelligence (IL) participated during 10 months. Every participant created his ow artist book with their chosen title using to the traditional Japanese technique. They also held a collective exhibition at the headquarters of the district of Gràcia, near the facilities of the Acidh. Sueños Refugidados (Refugee Dreams) is my most recent participatory photography project. From January to June 2017, a group of 11 young asylum seekers from 4 continents participated in this photography and collage workshop held in Barcelona. On June 10, 2017 we inaugurated a photographic exhibition of their work in the public space, in huge cubes, at Pl. De les Glòries in Barcelona.
Afrotopia Acerca is a different kind of project. In 2017 I was comissioned by the Spanish Cooperation Agency (AECID) to conduct 3 workshops in a row in 3 different African cities (Dakar, Niamey and Bamako) during November. 35 young African photographers took part on these workshops and completed a personal essay on the concept of Afrotopia. Their series were exhibited collectively in the Conservatoire des Arts et Métiers Multimédia of Bamako, as a part of the Rencontres de Bamako 17, Biennale Africaine de la Photographie. 500 hundred units of a hard cover 165 pages catalogue have been edited by AECID/Ministerio de Asuntos Exteriores, Unión Europea y Cooperación/Gobierno de España.
