Call For Papers

Despite the conventional attribution of moving images to cinema, such quality is inherent to the history of Image. The transportability of the image, which depends not only on its medium, but also on its finality, is an essential, trans-chronological and transcultural condition that reflects Mankind’s need to possess representations and disseminate them. Attributes of devotion, fetishism, symbolic or material power, propelled the circulation and diffusion of tangible, bidimensional and digital images.

Photography presents itself as a mere step in the process of development of new moving images, followed by cinema as a mechanical solution to the projection of overlaying images. Today, digital allows the diffusion of moving images without taking into account the quality of the medium, stripping the image of the very characteristics deemed before as important to its classification as equity or sacred material.

Obviously, we are not proposing the discussion between cinema and photography, since both are technically and morphologically complementary. Instead, we aim at the relations sprung from each media as a language mechanism, thematically, symbolically and functionally.

In this sense, we are looking for works whose investigation focus on photography and image as documentary, fiction, filmic and para-filmic narratives, which privilege Criticism of the Contemporary World(s) and Space(s): utopias, dystopias, social movements, etc.

The III Encontros de Fotografia [Encounters with Photography] propose the following panels:
) The documental photographic and filmic image;
) The relationship between sound, music and the moving image;
) The representation of unreality: dystopias, utopias, eutopias;
) Heterotopias;
) Social pictures: image as propaganda, antipropaganda, conflict and resistance;
) Places & Documents.100 years of the Faculty of Arts of the University of Porto: the institution, the actors, the city and the time of the foundation.

All abstracts must be submitted via email to encontrosdefotografia@gmail.com, until March 31st, 2019. All papers must be unpublished and should follow the standards indicated in the Submission Guidelines. Accepted papers will integrate the 3rd Encontros de Fotografia/FLUP [Encounters with Photography] conference, and will be published on the 4th issue of REVELAR Journal, upon peer assessment.
