Minute Photography is a photographic practice that originated in the late nineteenth century that democratized the photographic portrait. At a time when the lower classes could not afford to enter the select photographic studios, it was the same photographers who were placed in the streets of towns and cities offering, at an affordable price, the complete service. The secret of the minute camera is that it hides a laboratory inside where the images are manually developed, allowing the person portrayed to be given a copy of their black and white photograph in a few minutes. This process, like many craft trades, is on the way to extinction and only a few in the world continue to practice it.
Rare Avis next to his wooden camera Tristana, built by hand, they offer a trip to the past of silver and light to experience the art of minute photography first hand. They propose to portray the people of today at the leisurely and more human rhythm of yesteryear, while recovering and showing a historical technique that still does not cease to amaze.
Rare Avis is a project by Luisa Monleón and Cristina Rico.
In a remote valley of the Aragonese Pyrenees the legend of Armugán is sung. It is said that he is dedicated to a mysterious and terrible profession that nobody wants to talk about. They say that Armugán moves through the valleys clinging to the body of Anchel, his faithful servant and that both share the secret of a work as old as life, as terrible as death itself.

GUTTENBERG SPACE - UNED BARBASTRO
Faced with the hegemonic culture and the mainstream Promoted by large corporations, which emerge from the officialdom or aspire to be part of it, there are other cultures that flourish on the margins and that constitute the true creative engine of society. That engine that, in short, allows culture to advance towards diversity, innovation, imagination and free thought.
It is, therefore, the moment to reclaim the peripheries against the idea of the omnipotent center, to reclaim the value of the rural against the dominance of the urban, to defend the freshness of Afrofuturism against the outdated Eurocentric vision. The mainstream it also sometimes produces cultural products of great value, which cannot be neglected. But they are not at all comparable to the excitement produced by the discovery of all those spontaneous and imaginative proposals that arise from marginality.
That is why, to shake off the yoke of inertia, comfort and atony, each person should become a cool hunter, a trend tracker on the lookout for any sign or hint of insurgent creativity. Because the most interesting (almost) always happens on the margins.
