Written on June 4, 2012 by Banafsheh Farhangmehr in Arts & Cultures & Societies

PHotoEspaña, International Festival of Photography and Visual Arts, set out to become a Festival generated by popular demand in 1998, and today it has earned its place as one of the most relevant visual arts events in the world.

PHotoEspaña is one of the central international forums for photography. Each year the Festival attracts more than six hundred thousand people and receives acclaim from prestigious critics, making it the most popular cultural event in Spain.

The Festival is an exceptional occasion for discovering images, videos and installations created by outstanding national and international photographers and visual artists.

Since the first edition of the Festival, 858 exhibitions have been hosted in the city’s main museums, art centers and galleries. The shows are complemented by pedagogic and professional programs designed for diverse audiences.

The heart of the Festival in Madrid is located along the Paseo de Castellana that runs through the city centre. For the past three years the city of Cuenca has become a neighboring location of the Festival.

The growing international interest in PHotoEspaña has enabled the Festival to collaborate with a different country in each edition, through the collaboration between of artists and different institutions located in both countries.
