Athens Photo Festival 2017

The 2017 main exhibitions will take place from 14 June to 30 July 2017, at the Benaki Museum (Pireos St. Annexe).

The exhibition program comprises a series of solo and group exhibitions, presenting a wide spectrum of works selected through an international open call for proposals in combination with invited artists, featuring 85 emerging and established artists from 30 countries. Athens Photo Festival is a member of the European Month of Photography (EMoP), a network comprised of photography festivals in 8 European capitals that aims to foster collaboration on joint projects within a European framework. I particularly liked the sections ‘Still here, still now’ and the young Greek photographers 2017 (see the photos in my daily lightbox between 7 and 14 July 2017). I also liked the video of Janis Rafa ‘Requiem to a Shipwreck’ (see the video)
