Athens Photo Festival (former International Month of Photography in Athens), is the annual festival of photography in Greece and a premier cultural event in Athens, established in 1987 by the Hellenic Centre for Photography. It is the first and longest-running international festival of photography and related media in Greece, and one of the five oldest of its kind in the world.
Athens Photo Festival, with over 25 years of active and creative presence, expands continuously its role in a changing society, through a variety of projects and initiatives that enable people to experience and enjoy photography and related media.
The main program of exhibitions will take place at “Technopolis” of the Municipality of Athens, a former gasworks site that was founded in 1857, as well as in several venues around the city of Athens, featuring the work of international established and emerging photographers. Beside the exhibitions, the Athens Photo Festival includes a photo talk series (Photo Voices 2013), a portfolio review program, photography marathon (Athens Photo Inspiration 2013), screenings and other parallel events.
This year’s theme, intends to explore the concept of “Fluid Identities” in the context of the constantly changing state of today’s world, both physical and metaphorical, and on all its reflections, on environments, people, societies and cultures, investigating their changing boundaries.
