The festival of photography "Festival y mediterráneo" from Palmaphoto starts this Thursday, 27.06.2013 and lasts for the whole month of July. One of the objects of this festival is to create a spacious, unified area among the thirteen participating galleries (including Baluard, CaixaForum, Eric Casal, etc.).
One of the most important initiatives that are presented by Palmaphoto in this festival, are the programs First Focus and First Focus Advisor which are offering small grants for exhibitions and "coachings" offered by Art Palma. The coaches this year are the Uruguayan Marcelo Viquez and Adriana Petit from Palma, who also will have a joint exhibition.
Fernando Gómez de la Cuesta, director of Palmaphoto explains, that it is important to organize a photo festival on an island like ours, and mentioned, that the participation of the citizens over social networks, is enhanced this year.
