Manel Esclusa is the photographer of light par excellence. In his work, light is his raw material, the plastic from which he constructs images. But it is also the concept, the key to his research, and the subject of his photographs.

In this visit, we will address the importance of light in the perception and in the existence of objects, for creation and for life. Every time the sun rises, the inescapable passage of time is made manifest, and another rotation of the earth on its axis becomes evident. In what ways do we perceive light? Only through sight?

The exhibition, curated by Laura Terré, a historian of photography, takes a look at the career of this contemporary photographer with an artistic career of more than fifty years.

THE LEGACY OF LIGHT, by Manel Esclusa is an exhibition produced by ACVIC, distributed across four venues throughout the city; at the Escola d’Art de Vic, the Museu de l’Art de la Pell and the Temple Romà. T
he guided tour will take place at ACVIC, and will revolve around the photographic series presented in the exhibition.


After touring the exhibition and learning about Manel Esclusa’s works, participants will leave the ACVIC building to look for the same quality of light outside. And where to find this quality of light, when light is everywhere, in broad daylight? The answer is: In the shadows. In small work groups and using ACVIC cameras, participants will create their own compositions from the shadows around the art centre.

This activity is suitable for all ages, from pre-school to higher education.
