The international photography festival returns for its seventh instalment.
Famous for having been frequented by the great names of 20th-century art, from Salvador Dali to Marcel Duchamps and Richard Hamilton, the village of Cadaqués is reviving its artistic aura for the time of InCadaqués Photo Festival.
This seventh edition will feature 25 exhibitions by 35 national and international artists in some 20 galleries, including three underwater exhibitions in the bay. In fact, the festival is keen to explore new ways of exhibiting works, through innovation and creativity, always evoking surrealism, in reference to the town’s artistic past.
A wide range of photographic techniques will be on show, including Polaroid, photomontage, collage and heliogravure.
Not-to-be-missed exhibitions include one devoted to New York photographer Weegee, featuring rare vintage prints. Also not to be missed is the exhibition dedicated to Italian photographer Frank Horvat and his work on the world of fashion in the 1950s and 1960s, as well as “Flore”, evoking a “mythologised and timeless” Indochina.
The event will also showcase the winners of the “Open Call” competition, which will honour some fifteen emerging photographers. The work of Chloé Milos, winner of the 2023 vintage, with her “Non Technological Devices” series, will be on show. This year will see the first celebration of the Prix de la Jeune Photographie Féminine. Rewarding the work of a photographer who has never exhibited at a festival, this first edition will distinguish Eloïse Labarbe-Lafont, with her “Ghost” series.
The opening weekend will feature workshops, screenings, book presentations, photo walks and vernissages.
