Exploring European Identity through Photography

Athens Foto Festival 2017

Festivals | 07 June 2017 - 30 July 2017

Athens Photo Festival is the leading international festival of photography in Southeastern Europe. Under the title “Still Searching”, Athens Photo Festival celebrates its 30 years anniversary, and continues its tradition of exploring the social impact of the ever-changing visual culture. Our programme works within an international, national and local context, encompassing a variety of activities designed to reflect the diversity of contemporary photographic practice, and to create opportunities for exchange of ideas, artistic expression and international engagement.

The 2017 main exhibitions will take place from 7 June to 30 July 2017, at the Benaki Museum, presenting a wide spectrum of works selected through the current international open call for proposals. At the core of the festival is a range of events, including portfolio reviews, screenings, talks and discussions, workshops, and various community and participatory projects. In addition to the main venue-based programme, the festival encourages community involvement through satellite exhibitions in various locations in the city.
