PRAGUE PHOTO 2018

11th Edition of PRAGUE PHOTO 2018

Clam Gallas Palace Prague

24 – 29 APRIL 2018

As every year in April Prague comes alive with photography. The PRAGUE PHOTO will introduce 20 exhibitors from the Czech Republic, Slovakia, France, and Saudi Arabia.

For the first time, monumental barocco Clam Gallas Palace will host a vast array of individual photographers, galleries and institutions dealing with photography. The original photographs of almost 150 photographers – the contemporary ones as well as the classics – will be presented. Very popular are pop-up presentations – this year e.g. Magdalena Blahova, Gabina Farova, Jirina Hankeova, Tomas Paulus, Antonio Cossa and others. A very special event to be attended – portfolio of Vaclav Chochola, Jiri Kolar, Alexander Hackenschmied, classics of the Czech photography and art in all.

Traditionally PRAGUE PHOTO will bring a great number of representatives of the youngest generation of photographers – students and graduates of vocational schools (Institute of Creative Photography, Silasian University in Opava, University of West Bohemia Pilsen, Secondary and Higher Vocational Schools Michael and Prague School of Photography, Fotoschool of Brno).

As in previous years, this year’s festival includes a rich collection of accompanying program (presentations of professional publications, meetings with authors).

The already 11th edition of PRAGUE PHOTO serves as proof that the event meets with long-term interest of large public, professional audience, as well as photographers themselves. For the organizers the ever growing interest is a great motivation for the years to come.

A special PRAGUE PHOTOYOUNG AWARD will be presented by a jury of professional photographers to a young artist under the age of 30 years old.

The 11th edition of PRAGUE PHOTO is held under the auspices of Mrs Adriana Krnacova, Mayor of Prague, and Mr Oldrich Lomecky, Mayor of the Prague 1 Metropolitan District.

Laureate of PRAGUE PHOTO YOUNG AWARD 2017 – Lea Kálazi, student of the Studio of Creative Photography of College of Fine Arts in Bratislava, Slovakia under the tutelage of prof. Miro Svolik, will present her new portfolio of photographs.
