In this course we are going to learn different photographic intervention techniques based on the handmade spirit. From camera and film modification to printed images, we will enjoy creating new images or modifying the ones we already have. Carrying Do It Yourself and recycling as our lema, we will give a second life to everyday objects, such as binder dividers, cardboard cutouts or a toothbrush to turn them into filters, masks and tools to intervene cameras, photographic film and printed images. Do you want to create starscapes with an internal mask? Do you want to fill your photos with fluttering butterflies with the creative bokeh technique? Do you want to make the photos you took at the rock concert even heavier by scratching off the negatives or transport yourself Upside Down by exposing both sides of the film? You will learn that and much more in this course. In addition, we will talk about the creative process and the importance of linking techniques and messages to create powerful and organic images.

David Pérez (aka Sibux), linked to the art world since he was little (music, theatre, performance). He started about 15 years ago in the world of photography when he learned about the plastic universe of Toy Cams and experimental analogue photography. This leads him to train himself in different photographic disciplines and in a regulated manner in photographic technique (portrait, lighting) and in different old and alternative photographic processes, such as cyanotype, antitype, pinhole photography or Van Dike. As of 2018, he begins to shape his artistic project Sibux Fotografia, which combines his facet as a photographer with those of a trainer and educator.
His multidisciplinary experience, his artistic and personal background and his studies and professional experience in the social field, education and dynamization lead him to collaborate with other plastic artists, musical groups and other artists, to work as a creative photography trainer in centers civic, youth spaces, educational centres and cultural events and to participate in various international photography festivals. At the exhibition level, his photographs have been shown in artistic and cultural spaces and other alternative and urban spaces. In 2021 he participates in the installation of él Barri in the collective exhibition Processos, exhibited at the Espai d'Art i Creació Contemporanis Muxart, being selected for the 2019-2021 Valencia Biennial and obtaining an honourable mention in it. He currently combines photo sessions with the work of a creative photography trainer and is in the middle of the creative process of various exhibition projects.
