Reading Through Light (RTL) – valokuvan kautta lukemiseen

Screen Shot 2016-05-14 at 14.07.14This project is an attempt to combine literature and photography trough post-card creation, using the intersection between two disciplines to promote the readability of multilingual literature made in Finland. Using the poems of transcultural writers Finland-based, the photos will represent a contribution, an explanation or an interpretation of the texts itself.
Project coordination: Diana Rosy Ricárdez López (Sivuvalo’s Intern | UV)

Cultour and RTL projects are possible under Sivuvalo‘s internship programme in collaboration with Universidad Veracruzana (University of Veracruz, Mexico) and Dr. Olivia Jarvio (UV).
