Festival de la Luz (Festival of Light) Photography Festival
"What will make your work pass to posterity is not so much the problem that you have chosen or the spirit with which you treat it, but the characters that you have created and the atmosphere you've immersed them in."
- Arthur Shnitzler
The 2012 Festival of Light is currently taking place in Museums, Cultural Centers, Galleries and Art Venues in many cities of Argentina, including the provinces of Buenos Aires, Neuquén, Salta, Córdoba, Mendoza, Misiones, Río Negro and Tierra del Fuego, among others.
Today, I went to Centro Cultural Recoelta and I loved the work by Sara Facio. What you can read above (photo #2) is the concept behind her work. Her landscapes are people.
For those of you who don't know about it, the Festival of Light is an international collaboration of 27 photography festivals around the world and the most important photography biennial exhibition in Latin America.
This cooperation has a common website: www.festivaloflight.net, and a continuous exchange of exhibitions, activities and participants.
