FOTOMÉXICO 2017, the International Photography Festival is a space for creativity, a reference in the reflection and dialogue about national and international photographic production, a diverse expression of the vitality, relevance, and strength of this medium and its creators.
From October to December, under the coordination of the Centro de la Imagen, FOTOMÉXICO 2017 is a forum open to the diverse and multiple works of our photographic creators. It is a meeting place for the photography community with venues in museums, galleries, and exhibition spaces that also join the Foto México Network’s initiatives.
Dedicated to theme of "Latitudes", this second edition of the festival offers plural, geographic, anthropological, and multidisciplinary perspectives, with exhibitions by renowned artists from Mexico, Brasil, Chile, France, Brasil, United States, Argentina, Peru, Spain, France, Germany, Scandinavia, India, Japan, South Africa, Mali and Nigeria, among others.
A broad program of parallel activities complements the festival, which for the first time organizes a call for entries to participate in portfolio review that brings together outstanding photographers, visual artists, and curators, to generate a dynamic of feedback with all those who have submitted their work. The Museo Amparo in Puebla once again opens its doors to host the International Photography Meeting 2017, an event not to be missed in this edition of the festival.
FOTOMÉXICO 2017 is an opportunity for the public to experience in this artistic expression that captures the moment to eternalize it through the multiple eyes of the photographic community. Talks by Simon Njami, William Ewing, Artur Walther, Mónica Allende, Christine Thomas, Iatã Cannabrava, Antoine D'Agata, Bezhad Farazollahi, Romina Resuche, Gerardo Suter and Chuck Samuels.
