____________________________________________________ - Ling Chung ｘ Brownie Publishing - “brownie publishing” is an independent publisher, which works for promoting Hong Kong art of photography and Photobook, so that the public may come to know more outstanding local photographers. Ever since the popularization of cameras and prevalence of social networks, photography has become part of Hong Kong people’s life. Photography as artistic creation, however, seems somewhat remote. We aim at exploring more creative possibilities of ourselves, our environment, and humanities through the medium of photography. https://www.brownie.com.hk/ . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

- Verónica Sanchis Bencomo ｘ Foto Féminas - "Foto Féminas" is a platform promoting the works of Latin American and Caribbean photographers. In addition to the photographic events we organise we recently started our photography library, which looks to promote the editorial works of female photographers from the region. In this opportunity, we will be talking about two books from our library, Los Mundos de Tita by Fabiola Cedillo and B to B by Brenda Moreno. Both artists documented family environments with a universal approach where one can find within the narrative. https://foto-feminas.com/ . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
