GETXOPHOTO is a photography festival with international vocation, but at the same time, they don’t forget local photographers. The festival takes place in Getxo, Basque Country (Spain). The main artworks are distribute around this location. You can meet with a big photo on the facade of a building or inside the library and some main buildings of Algorta…Don’t worry, because we can visit them with a guided tour. Yessss, a luxury! and only 2€.
Another day of learning and relaxing between art and society.
I had the opportunity to enjoy a PHOTOWALK 2012 , this is another activity that Getxophoto offer, we visited Photo Gallery 20 manage by Javier Gimeno. He works in the unique photo gallery from Bilbao, and Vicente Paredes Photo Studio, who introduced very naturally his personal photography projects such as “La Familia Muza” and “Huerta Urbana”. I loved the 3 hours and the people who met was kind and curious.
This is a new way of enjoying your holidays. Why not?
Last year GETXOPHOTO was about a praise of old age, and this year 2012 they decided to emphasize the praise of childhood. Can we return to the innocence of our childhood watching those pictures? Innocence as essence of ignorance of our reality, purity of uncertainty and manipulation of the old age?
Let’s see! I made a small selection of my favorites pictures.
