Photo Espana 2008
4 June — 27 July
The 11th annual Photo Espana festival in Madrid will host 69 exhibitions: 32 at the Official Section and 37 at the Off Festival, with works by 230 artists from different disciplines and 35 different countries.
There are also lots of events, workshops, conferences (Joan Fontcuberta is heading up a multi-day symposium about "The Future of Photography"), a photo book fair, portfolio reviews, and more.
Lens Culture is delighted to be an active part of this year's festival. Editor Jim Casper will be reviewing the portfolios of 70 finalists from over 900 applications. We plan to feature the work of several of these great, emerging artists in upcoming issues of Lens Culture.
And of course, we will try to present some of the best picks from the great exhibitions, as well.
In the meantime, here is a random sampling of some of the work that can be seen in the exhibits.
