In line with the exhibtion "Affinity Paths. 10 Spanish photographers" we have the pleasure to invite the photographers and artists Ángel Marcos (Spain) and Ronan McCrea (Ireland) to discuss about the contemporary context of photography in Spain and Ireland. Chariman: Oliva María Rubio, curator of the exhibition.
Ángel Marcos (Valladolid, 1955). Ángel’s work is to be found within the contemporary trends of photography as conceptual art, introducing the concept of narration, to near cinematographic effect. His different series give rise to reflection on aspects such as desolation, exclusion, desire, lack of communication or isolation.
Ronan McCrea (Dublín, 1969) lives and works in Dublin, from where he develops varying projects in photography, projections, installations and sculpture. He has exhibited extensively, both across Ireland and internationally. In 2005, he was one of the seven artists to represent Ireland in the Venice Biennale.
