1987 - 2017: CELEBRATING 30 YEARS
Athens Photo Festival is the leading international festival of photography in Southeastern Europe. Exploring critical issues relevant to our times, our programme works within an international, national and local context, encompassing a variety of exhibitions and activities designed to reflect the diversity of contemporary photography, and to create opportunities for exchange of ideas, artistic expression and international engagement.
The 2017 main exhibitions is taking place from 7 June until 30 July 2017, at the Benaki Museum, presenting a wide spectrum of works of both emerging and established artists from all over the world. At the core of the festival is a range of events, including international portfolio reviews, screenings, talks and discussions, workshops, and participatory projects. In addition to the main venue-based programme, the festival encourages local community involvement through satellite exhibitions in various locations in the city.
Our curatorial team aimed to develop a programme of exhibitions for 2017, creating a dialogue between different thematic ideas in relation to this year’s theme, under the title "Still Searching".
