Exhibition that brings together the works of the photographers selected after the call for Futures Photography.

Maija Savolainen, Carlos Alba, Hien Hoang, Emily Graham, Eva Kreuger, Marta Bogdanska, Alexey Shlyk, Valeria Cherchi, Io Sivertsen, Lena Dobrowolska & Teo Ormond Skeaping and Jean Vincent Simonet have been selected by the Festival and will become part of this platform that promotes the mobility and visibility of emerging photographers.

After a year of comings and goings and uncertainties, the current reality is anything but balanced. Waves of counter narratives continue to flourish and subvert our knowledge base, altering all the parameters that marked the sense of being and belonging.

In Europe, the new generations try to promote a new cultural literacy. Although it seems difficult to be able to define a direction in such a cluttered environment. Within this climate of hybrid experimentation, we are witnessing new realities being forged every day. What new ways of doing, narrating and understanding are here to stay, and what can we do with the horizon that lies ahead?

These eleven artists will explore these questions in this exhibition. These photographers were selected through an open call among the authors who are part of the platform Futures Photography, created in 2018. PHotoESPAÑA selected Carlos Alba who joins the rest of the authors selected by the rest of the European institutions that are part of this project.

A hybrid proposal in which, from different media, in dialogue with photography, the impact of technology and photography on Humanity and the natural world is investigated.
