Behind the Camera is a theoretical-practical workshop on the creative process in photography, where Oscar Molina takes the students through the different stages of the creative process, with special emphasis on photography as a personal project. The aim is to try and analyse the factor that help or hinder the development of the maximum creative potential of each person. This involves finding the way in which ideas and concepts are appropriately managed and result in consistent and mature projects.  

During the workshop, the work will be viewed of those students who so wish, along with a commented screening of some of Oscar Molina’s key projects.

Oscar Molina, Madrid, 1962.
Oscar Molina has been experimenting with videos, photographs, graphic design and music since the early 1980s. During that decade, he mainly worked on video and photography commissions for different companies, as well as focusing on his first photographic series. In 1987, he began to work in his own photography studio and to develop the "Objetos" series.
At the start of the 1990s, he began "fotografias de un diario", his first open project that was indefinite in time. It was in the early 1990s when he began to organise and coordinate photography workshops and seminars with well-known visiting photographers. The first ones were held at his Madrid studio then at Cabo de Gata , and in conjunction with the Mestizo Association from 1997 to 2000. In 1996, he unveiled the "silencio abierto" project. He ran his “Behind the camera” course in collaboration with Jeanne Chevalier, the Swiss photographer, for the first time in that same year. In 1997, he moved to live in Cabo de Gata (Almería), and he began to work on the "Photolatente" project in 1998.
He has written on photography and his work has been acquired for numerous private and public collections. He is currently working on the "Petite histoire du temps" and "Ammonites" projects for the Gassendi Museum (Digne, France) and on preparing a book and exhibition at the Haute-Provence Geological Reserve. He lives and works in Almería where, in parallel to his photography projects, he continues to organise the “Cabo de Gata Photography Workshops”and coordinate courses with the leading photographers of today. He also regularly runs the “Behind the Camera" workshop.
