Today pictures are everywhere, since every smartphone is a camera. However do we really understand what a picture what to show beyond those social vanity of the mass? Either you shoot or paint, you want something more than that. This could be ignored or explored. The world we see is not a copy of what our eyes capture. It is what our mind fabricate. Come join us to hear what our speakers share how they reflect what they capture and what they want in and out of showing them.
