1st Poros Photography Festival “The Topographic Imaginary”

12 July 24

This summer, Pounta will be adorned with a tapestry of photographic landscapes! iFocus.gr, in collaboration with Katheti, organizes the 1st Poros Photography Festival titled “The Topographic Imaginary”. The exhibition will be hosted at Katheti from 12 to 24 July and will be open daily to the public between 7:00 and 11:00 pm. The opening will take place on Friday 12 July at 8:00 pm.

Through your approach, imagination, creativity and participation we will see different perspectives and interpretations of how our theme of Landscape Photography is visualized. The exhibition’s photographs were selected through a competition, with entries coming from all over Greece and abroad. At the same time, local photographers, as well as the photography group “Passage” are participating in the 1st Poros Photography Festival. The landscape photographs will take us on a journey to familiar and unknown places! We are waiting for you on the hospitable island of Poros, where photographers meet in Pounta and present their photographs.
