Photography exhibition

April 18, 2010

If it happens that you are in Madrid, visit the CaixaForum, an interesting photography exhibition is taking place. Several photographers with different themes: violence against women in Pakistan, the 2006 war in Lebanon, violence in Kenya, violence in Venezuela…

The pictures of the women in Pakistan are so powerful, the contrast between their faces with all the severe scars they have suffered due to acid and the beautiful textiles they covered their head with, is impressive and extremely touching.

Visit to “la fabrica de cristales de la Granja”

April 18, 2010

On thursday we went on a 2 day trip with my class in school to a glass fabric in La Granja (Segovia), la fabrica de cristales de la Granja. We were shown the manual process of producing glass, from heating, to blowing, turning and decorating each piece manually, replicating ancient pieces. We also visited the museum, that has very old pieces, as well as samples from contemporary artists.

These are some of the pictures I took, I hope you enjoy them!
