It is not only about violence.
You name it:
Love…

  • Thanks to the Organisation for inviting me. Thanks to Leandro, Yanina, Max for your trust. Thanks to Montecarlo and Javier for joining.
    My name is Eva Snijders: (I’m definitely not a “visual Storyteller”, Jesús could testify for that ;-) Storyteller, Story Practitioner, Story Listener, Questioner, Challenger. I’m more like a midwife to other people’s stories.
    Montecarlo: Storyteller, Filmmaker, Transmedia Architect
    Javier Jaén: Graphic Designer, Illustrator
    15’ each, then 15’ of debate to which you are all invited.
  • Yanina called me on behalf of our common friend Leandro. She asked me to talk about Visual Storytelling. I told her that was not really my speciality, but I could do so, since I had studied Design. Then I decided it would be a good idea to invite Montecarlo and Javier to join me, since they are two true visual artists. My background includes work as a (Photo) Editor.
  • 15 years ago, I would receive boxes like this one every day.
    They would contain original photographs (Mind you, this is before we all went digital!). I would feel honoured and slightly impressed. And there was always a feeling of excitement when opening them. They looked like treasure boxes to me. I also felt privileged and sometimes, slightly overwhelmed, to receive someone’s original work for me to judge whether it was suitable for one of our books.
  • 10/04/2014 Six weeks ago yesterday. Graphic reporter for AFP. The reporter’s eye.
  • And it does so individually.
  • Which story is important?
    It is not about the story I tell
    It is about the story you tell yourself
    While I tell the story I tell
    Paul A. Costello
  • This is the only part left of my original presentation. I wanted to tell you about visual metaphors and parables. Until last Sunday, my thread was about “visuals as doors to perception, as entrance ways to the sub conscience”. Then I had a long chat with a dear colleague and decided to be brave and stand tall. Today I am going to give you a little gift, a world premiere, if you wish, and tell you…
