Es Pujols' Plaça d'Europa welcomes "50 fotografías con historia"

foto 2022 50 fotosAna Juan, President of the Consell de Formentera; Alejandra Ferrer, Vice President and Councillor of Tourism; Isabel Izquierdo, director of programming at Acción Cultural Española (AC/E), and Carlos Bernús, the local head of tourism promotion, presented "50 fotografías con historia", a display of 50 photographs from the last eighty years of our country. The exhibition is curated by José María Díaz-Maroto and Gonzalo Revidiego.

Vice President Ferrer thanked organisers for giving Formentera the chance to host an exhibition "of great historical importance" and invited residents and tourists to "visit it and get to know in an educational and artistic way a collection of snapshots from the last eight decades in our country".

Ms. Izquierdo explained that the exhibition, which is presented by the state-owned AC/E, "has met with rave reviews due to its quality and the breadth of topics shown, and because it brings together the most prominent names in Spanish photography of the twentieth century". With 50 images that tell 50 stories, "50 fotografías con historia" takes visitors on a visual journey from the Spanish Civil War to our world today. The exhibition has toured several Spanish cities.

The director of Formentera Fotogràfica asserted, "Bringing the AC/E's magnificent exhibition to the island in parallel with the tenth Formentera Fotogràfica is a point of pride. Many of the photographers who are part of this journey through the history of photography –Chema Madoz, Juan Foncuberta, Isabel Muñoz, Sandra Balsells, Juana Biarnés, Ricardo Casas, Cristina García Rodero, Alberto García-Alix, Cristina de Middel, Carlos Pérez-Siquier and Gervasio Sánchez– have also been integral to the life of the festival, so we are very excited to share this special edition with all of them again. Plus, this year we will welcome Chema Conesa and Ramon Masats, to whom we pay a well-deserved tribute on the centenary of Francesc Català-Roca".

The collective exhibition is on display in Es Pujols' Plaça d'Europa until 3 July. Seventeen of the featured photographers are also recipients of Spain's National Photography Prize. The exhibition offers visitors the chance to take a guided tour by using their mobile phones to scan the QR codes that accompany each photograph.

The exhibition is organised by AC/E, the Consell de Formentera and Formentera Fotogràfica, which this year celebrates its tenth anniversary on the island between 26 and 29 May.

Formentera qualifies a new master artisan and 5 new artisans

foto 2022 cartes artesanalsToday Ana Juan, President and Councillor of Commerce of the Consell de Formentera, and Alejandra Ferrer, Vice President, delivered six cartes d'artesania, or artisan cards, to islanders who successfully completed qualifying exams in October. Recipients include Hernán Gustavo Fernández, Master Artisan Jeweller; Yessica Camacho, Toys and Games Artisan; Maria Isabel Escandell, Costume Jewellery Artisan; Estefanía Hernández, Artisan Object Decorator; Beatriz Rivero, Artisan Jeweller, and Juan Zarco, Artisan Object Decorator.

President Juan congratulated the newly accredited craftworkers on their "efforts to train and grow in this trade, which speaks to the enthusiasm out there for crafts and wares made often by hand on Formentera". Juan noted that this year's exam was the first since 2017 and that it is the Consell's plan to continue giving local artisans the chance to attain accreditation. "Artisan markets are not only immensely valuable assets for tourism, but there is something distinctly Formentera about this modest industry; we need to take care of and promote it".

To receive their diploma, the individuals were evaluated by a panel of craftwork specialists of the Consell and master craftsmen and women. Examinees demonstrated production in their workshops to panel members, who asked practical questions about technique and process. Depending on whether they apply as artisans or master artisans, individuals must also show familiarity with basic notions of the craft, tools, equipment, the origin of the materials used, the process of preparation, handling, processing and finishing, as well as, among other subjects, safety and hygiene.

Today on Formentera there are 68 cardholding artisans, 11 master artisans and four honorary master artisans.
