Athens Photo World – 7th-16th June 2019
From the 7th to the 16th of June 2019, locals and visitors to Athens will come ‘face to face’ with the global reality of the planet through the gaze and the work of experienced and recognised photographers.
What is Athens Photo World?
Athens Photo World aims to showcase the work of photojournalists and their contribution to shaping the image of our world and documenting moments of history in the making, in times of political and social upheaval and reclassification.
At the same time, an intended purpose is to showcase Athens as the meeting point of photographers at a time of rapid transmission of images, news and developments.
This year the exhibition is dedicated to the memory and 30-year work of Yiannis Behrakis – one of Reuters’ most decorated and best-loved photographers, who recently died after a long battle with cancer.
