"Under the Andalusian Sky"Opening May 5 8PM-9PM Exhibit Dates: May 5 - July 12, 2016 Fundación Valentín de Madariaga Av María Luisa, s/n, 41013 Sevilla, Spain +34 954 36 60 72 "Under the Andalusian Sky" shows the work of 10 international photographers. Cristina Iturrioz, Paul Jones, Mille Kalsmose-Hjelmborg, Fran Marti, Juan Mas-Baga, Friedrich Saller, Miguel Soler-Roig, Michou Von Beschwitz, Kim Weston and Philip Young. In 2014 they followed the route that Washington Irving made in Andalusia, nearly two centuries ago. This route runs through the steps followed in 1829 by the romantic American writer and diplomat, fascinated by the wealth and exoticism of the Spanish-Muslim culture. After being exhibited in Tarragona, Barcelona and Ibiza, the show now arrives to Seville in its second year of scheduled tour around Spain, in museums and institutions.

We are excited to announce the 2016 Print of the Month Portfolio! This year's selection will be from our 2014-2015 Spain Nude Photo Workshops. The first nude photography workshop was in Andalusia, Spain, 2014 and the 2nd nude workshop was held in Barcelona, Spain, 2015. It was an amazing experience that we shared with a select handful of photographers. Here are a few posts about the workshops:

"Kim Weston - Nude in Tower"
Kim's photographs from our Andalusia Workshop in Spain can be found in the current POM offerings. These photographs were taken in Madrid, Granada, Sotogrande and Zufre. We hope you enjoy viewing them.
Just sitting back in our patio with a few minutes to reflect on our Spain and France adventure. I managed to develop 75 rolls of film. That’s only 750 frames and I bracket my exposures. Maybe we are talking 300 photographs, with many being group shots and fun exposures. We are talking 200 photos for 3 weeks.
This adventure that Miguel Soler-Roig, Gina and I came up with over drinks at Paris Photo 2013 was a far in the future idea. When Miguel said it was a go he had secured the locations and lodgings, the workshop became like a time lapse photo of a rose bud opening. We wanted 2 of our models to accompany us, Larva and Sara. Miguel, Gina and I agreed. To go that far and not to have models that I knew and who could work with our students that may not have ever photographed nudes before, Sara and Larva were a must.
Back to Spain, it’s hard to even define the work that Miguel and Gina did to pull this off. But I must say it was the greatest life-changing workshop I have ever experienced. I was not only with Miguel a teacher, but a participant in a life changing experience, through the culture, history, cuisine, friendships and artistic work.
The whole trip boils down to one of our last nights together around the dinner table maybe 1:30 or 2:00 am. We all looked into each other’s souls remembering this crazy 7 days we spent together as a family of artists, a family of friends. And we realized this would never happen again. With great comfort we understood what just happened. Miguel rose his glass and said, “Who is up for next year?” We all cheered and signed up. For next time old friends, new ones we will make a completely new adventure. More to come about our adventures to Jaen, Ronda, Granada, Sotogrande, Seville and Arles.....
Our 2014 Spain Andalusia Workshop with Miguel Soler-Roig was concluded one week ago. We photographed and visited so many wonderful places and stayed in paradores all over Spain. This was an experience we will never forget. Madrid, Jaén, Ronda, the Alhambra in Granada, Sotogrande, Seville and more! The weather was perfect, we brought our models Larva and Sara with us, met new friends and spent time with previous workshop participants. This was by far the best workshop locations and the best accommodations you could ask for. More photos to come.
