Founded in 1993 in Mexico City in “El Centro de la Imagen” with a program that brings publishing projects, conferences, specialized exhibition tables and workshops. This is a festival that takes place biannually in September and is one of the most important photographic celebrations in Mexico and Latin America.
This project is amazing, there are 40 absolutely fabulous exhibitions that contribute to the public to compare between the great master and apprentice, it’s a great way to learn how to read images. There are approximately 500 exhibits going on at the same time, where 300 of them alone are in the city of Mexico. This speaks of the dimensions photo September has taken as a photographic festival also called the month of photography. This idea came from other cities like Houston, Barcelona or Paris where there is a month dedicated to photograph.
