Meet the SPEAKERS
There is nothing that the people of the Caribbean enjoy more than a good love story, and Mónika Frías is no exception: Videographer of Dominican origin and based in Barcelona, Mónika enjoys it so much that she turned it into a career. Her warm, intimate, yet hilarious videos of her are the result of her approach: instead of wearing a huge set of audio and lighting gear, she and her D-SLR get into every party and capture moments unexpected from within…
Having worked in the structured world of commercial production, she switched routes five years ago, and that’s what she appreciates most about this line of work: the freedom and joy of capturing the fun, unexpected, and heartwarming side of something so beautifully unstructured like a love story.

Alex Domènech is a photographer specialized in author documentary photography. Between his personal life and his photographic projects there is not a very defined division: he shows us his intimacy in the form of narrations. In his images we clearly see how a lifestyle can become a long-term personal project. If we delve a little into his career, we soon realize his interest in places out of the ordinary, which carry with them an important historical burden and where wounds are still open. Bosnia, Serbia, Lebanon or Syria are a clear example.
His references come from cinema, photography and painting. He is also interested in communist architectural currents, non-places, what we could consider a limbo between identities. The inhospitable. He is moved by empathy, intuition and details.
Alex’s photography looks towards the margins, enters and explores places out of the ordinary, the limits. He creates universes through a language that is constructed from that point of view in which techniques, poetics and identities meet, mix and separate. In his latest projects, he has matured a discourse in which stories are told from the intimacy of what has been experienced, towards new perspectives.
Diego is an all-terrain graphic designer, passionate about art direction, photography and illustration. He loves to pass on that passion and share all the knowledge gained through experience.
He has worked for international clients in agencies and as a freelancer, designing brands and websites. For a few years he also has knowledge in web development. After all, it is interesting to know how things work inside to be able to design them well. With him we will learn to focus the visual style of our website, adapting it to our brand and making us feel identified. He will show us how to follow some guidelines to have typographic and style coherence. He will also tell us about the technologies available and provide us with graphic inspiration.
