On 1 January 2015 the exhibition “1Dia1Foto” opened at the Centre d’Arts Santa Monica in Barcelona. “1Dia1Foto” is a photojournalism project done by 31 photographers throughout 2014 in Catalonia. The exhibition displays 365 photos of the project.
Today @JordiVPou twitter account has reached 10000 tweets. To celebrate that number I have decided to give a present to one of my followers. Anyone re-tweeting that 10000th tweet will enter a draw to win a signed Kokovoko project print (24x30cm) and a catalog (almost no prints left!) from kokovoko.info exhibition at IEI in Lleida.
You must be a follower to enter the draw. Just RT the 10000th tweet and wait. You have 48 hours to do it, once that time is over I will randomly select a winner who will receive the lot by mail.
Update: We have a winner!! Congratulations to Esther Solé!!
A picture that has lost its eyes is a dead picture.
We are saturated with images, maybe it’s time to start trashing the useless ones. Trash-a-Photo project is created with the aim to help achieve this goal. A project that wants to help society to get rid of those photographs without eyes, abandoned pictures without past or future. Each day we are going to break one of these images, leaving a photographic record of destruction, but not of the original image, which finally ceases to exist. Project is updated daily with a new destroyed picture. Follow it at trashaphoto.tumblr.com

Included in the “Setmana de la Poesia” (week of poetry) festival in Barcelona yesterday “Pou & Pou fan Poe” was presented at la Pedrera, the famous Gaudi building in Barcelona. “Pou & Pou fan Poe” is a poetry and images event celebrating the poetry by Edgar Allan Poe.
Catalan poet Txema Martinez has just finished the first Catalan translation of all Poe poetry. To celebrate this moment a poetry show was held yesterday. A dramatized reading of Poe poems by actor Josep Maria Pou was accompanied by photographs by Jordi V. Pou projected on a large screen, to build a dialogue between the verses and images, in an attempt to update and claim Poe modernity.
