When PHotoEspaña was founded in 1998 it was with a clear purpose: to show the public the work of the best international photographers and visual artists, to become an annual forum for professionals, and to provide a platform for young creators and projects. Twelve years on, PHotoEspaña is now a major event which has been attended by over 2,400 artists. The Festival is an exceptional occasion for discovering images, videos and installations created by outstanding national and international photographers and visual artists.
