Photography continues to be the ideal vehicle to discover the universe in which we live. The #VisitSpain call, which will be launched jointly by OPPO y PHotoESPAÑA, invites professional and / or amateur photographers to let us know their environment and culture. The daily life of its cities, its streets and its favorite meeting places.
Ramón Masats, an expert in portraying Spanish cities and their people, is the sponsor of the project. The call proposes to the participants to be inspired by the works of his latest exhibition, Visit Spain, to participate through Instagram and the PHotoESPAÑA website. The photographs can be in black and white, like those of Masats, but they can also use the rest of the colors to show us that Spain is a country of contrasts. The green tones of the North, the blues of the Mediterranean, the yellows of Castile, the light of Andalusia ...
A call for both cities and their inhabitants that seeks, once again, the collective illusion and honor the creativity of all citizens.
Starting in September, different Spanish cities will host an exhibition on urban furniture with a selection of the best images participating in the call for each city.
