It will be Europe’s newest and most ambitious photography festival at a time when photography plays such a huge part in all our lives. The festival’s mission is three-fold :

  • To make world-class photography available to the widest possible audience in the regions
  • To stimulate debate and discussion about the many vital issues that surround photography at the beginning of this 21st century
  • To raise awareness and appreciation of the photographic arts to the level enjoyed by painting , sculpture and the other visual arts.

Photographers from the United States, Germany, New Zealand, France, Finland, Egypt. Italy  and the United Kingdom will be showing their work in some twenty venues across the city.  The autumn festival will be the first of biennial events.
