The fourth edition of the International Festival of Contemporary Photography PHOTOALICANTE is committed to innovation and the development of new creative spaces, and seeks to offer new experiences in the photography industry. This year, the festival brings you 17 exhibitions, 11 urban interventions, 6 workshops, 4 conferences and up to 13 other activities.
The theme of this year’s festival is Inside/Outside, with which it reflects on the relationship between photography and both public and private environments through different interpretations. It shows different types of reality expressed by the artist and the environment in which the artist works, which is always the first step in any creative process.
