Developing the continents is a trip around the continents. It is an analog photography exhibition which analises our differences and similarities despite the culture. The pictures that will be part of this exhibition will be the elements that have influenced the development of a person throughout their life given by the culture and society where they live.

Five girls from the five continents will be the authors and all of them will photograph the same, but from their point of view. The photographs will therefore be unique, since each one will convey a different culture.

Developing the continents will be an interactive exhibition in which you, the visitors, will have to find out what photography belongs to which author. Through social networks, you will be informed about the lives of these five girls and also, on the exhibition day, you can read a small biography of each of them.

Who am I?

I am Claudia and I am studying Communication and Cultural Industries in University of Barcelona.

Developing the continents was born after one year living in Groningen, Netherlands.I met there all kind of people and all of them from different cultures. I bought an analog camera a month before I left to photograph everything that had marked and influenced me of that city. Once I revealed the photographs, I thought how these photographs would be made by people of totally different cultures and in that moment the idea of this project came to me.

Once with the idea in mind, I started looking for the participants of this project. I was sure that they were girls, since we are in a world full of male photographers, and in addition, all of them had to be students and middle class in order to create a defined photographs profile.

Through contacts and contacts I reached these five girls, ready to photograph what I will tell them. Therefore, as the director and producer of the project, I will inform them of the eighteen photographs that should be photographed.

The five girls

They don't know each other and the only contact they have in common is me. An interesting element is how from Barcelona, five girls are contacted and there is no connection between them, this exhibition is created.

These five girls will be the ones who will make the pictures. Starting from the left, we find Jisoo Kim from South Korea, then Alicia Rodríguez from Spain , then Sisitha Ndungane who is from South Africa, then Tatiana Villaseñor, who is originally from Mexico but has lived all her life in California, United States and finally Genn Lai who is from Sydney, Australia. All of them have an age between 21 and 25 years, they are students or have recently finished studying and are middle class. In order to have the maximum information of them, via social networks you will be given information about them and in addition, the exhibition will show a complete biography of each of them.

Where will your money go?

This will be the distribution of the budget:
