Athens Photo Festival 2018 - Main Exhibition | Benaki Museum
After 30th anniversary's festivities last year, the festival now enters its fourth decade with the aim to challenge the boundaries and experience of a traditional festival of photography.

Exploring critical issues relevant to our times, the festival functions as a dynamic platform where the social impact of the ever-changing visual culture can be raised and discussed. Athens Photo Festival 2018 brings together over 120 emerging and established international artists from 32 countries with the aim to reflect the diversity of contemporary photography, and to create opportunities for exchange of ideas, artistic expression and international engagement.

The 2018 main exhibitions take place from 6 June to 29 July 2018, at the Benaki Museum (Pireos St. Annexe). At the core of the festival is a range of events, including portfolio reviews, screenings, talks and discussions, workshops, and various community and participatory projects. In addition to the main venue-based programme, the festival encourages community involvement through satellite exhibitions in various locations in the city.

The main exhibition program, which covers over 2,000 square meters, is divided into sections, striving to create a dialogue between different thematic ideas, woven into one whole.
