#BJ_Navamuel, ‘FiestaK’, Kowasa, 27.03.2015 [eng

Sadly, Kowasa is now closed, their website too, yet you will find some images so you can make up an idea of how it was. It has been a reference for photographers and photobookies not only in Barcelona, but all around Spain, and many other places, for sure.

And before they said goodbye they wanted to organize a farewell party called FiestaK with some activities, announced on twitter and on facebook with a poster like this: Continue reading

Desgraciadamente Kowasa ha cerrado, su web también, aunque podéis encontrar imágenes para que os hagáis una idea de cómo era. Ha sido una referencia para fotógrafos y photobookies, no sólo de Barcelona, sino en todo España y muchos otros lugares, por supuesto.

Y antes de decir adiós quisieron organizar una fiesta de despedida llamada FiestaK con algunas actividades, anunciada en twitter y facebook con un cartel como éste: Continue reading

Esta es la segunda vez que Miren Pastor se atreve a realizar una sesión BookJockey. Vuelve al País Vasco, y de alguna manera es también una continuación de su sesión anterior, por lo menos en el título, un juego de palabras con el título Bidean, algo así como ‘los cimientos del camino’.
Esta sesión forma parte de ARG! Argazki Festibala’15, un festival de fotografía en Oñate. Tienes más información en vasco y español aquí.

BJ_Bagué writes on her experience as a BookJockey [eng

Once nerves has gone, session is over, everything is tidy, I’m sending Xènia Bagué a questionnaire* to share with you her impression on her experience with the format and the session she performed along with Paco Navamuel past February 6th. This session served as a farewell to the shop at L’Abaceria market stall, in Barcelona, which was the physical part of La Parada, and an homage to the artist that passed by it until that moment.

Xènia Bagué

It was an emotional session, I think (at least, most of the attendees said so!), mainly because it represented the beginning of a new age for La Parada. We combined photography book, illustrated book, photoghraphies and illustrations, with an audio base marking different content blocks, with nods to our physical space as the live performance of Xavi, street guitarist who always played besides La Parada, or Pepe’s voiceover, the gypsy who sells socks on the market, or the typical knife-grinder… Continue reading

BJ_Bagué escribe sobre su experiencia como BookJockey [esp

Una vez los nervios han desaparecido, la sesión ya ha pasado, todo está recogido, le mando un cuestionario* a Xènia Bagué para que comparta con vosotros sus impresiones sobre su experiencia con el formato y la sesión que hizo con Paco Navamuel el pasado día 6 de febrero. Esa sesión sirvió como despedida de la tienda en el puesto del mercado de La Abacería, en Barcelona, que es la parte física de La Parada, y homenaje a los artistas que han pasado por ella hasta ese momento.

Xènia Bagué

Creo que fue una sesión emotiva (¡al menos, la mayoría de los asistentes eso decía!) principalmente porque representó el inicio de una nueva etapa de La Parada. Unimos libro de fotografía, libro ilustrado, fotografías e ilustraciones, con una base de audio que marcaba distintos bloques de contenido, con guiños a nuestro espacio físico como la actuación en directo de Xavi, el guitarrista de calle que tocaba siempre junto a La Parada, voz en off de Pepe, el gitano que vende calcetines en el mercado, el afilador típico del mercado… Continue reading

#BJ_Horacio, Blank Paper Escuela, 22.06.2013 [eng

With this session, Horacio Fernández invented one of the bookjockey formats of greater popularity, which almost became a kind of standard. After him had been used with variations, by Saddredine Arezki with Annakarin Quinto and Paco Navamuel, for instance.

Back on june 2013, all to celebrate the festival of photography, an all day party organized by Blank Paper School of Photography to celebrate end of course, with all kind of activities, students showing their works, launching of Humint by Julián Barón, a photodummy contest, a slide projection on the street, a workshop with Marcos López and a photographic bingo, for example.

We invited Horacio Fernández, well known historian, curator, an expert on photography publications and latin american photobooks, to develop a bookjockey session. And as in other previous occasions with no more rules that the ones he proposed to us. Horacio accepted our challenge, including this lack of rules to follow, immersed himself in his role as dj of books and shortly afterwards he made his proposal. Just like djs do, he would stand at the back of the room, the audience would sit in front of him facing the front of the room, where the books BJ Horacio will show us from his mixer desk would be projected. A video camera right over the table with books would transmit images to the projector and record the session. In this video you can see the result of this magnificent meeting, a delicious journey through a lot of books from all ages and origins, to introduce to a non-specialized audience a variety of proposals, stories told in book form. You can see the list of them below the video and here some social media editing on storify.
