The Lima Photo 2018 exhibition began yesterday in Lima with more than 20 photographic galleries of photographers from Peru and other Latin American countries.
“The event is free and will open its doors from Thursday 23 until next Sunday, August 26, in the emblematic Parque Salazar in Miraflores, in the capital city”, informed Telesur TV.
The photographs are artistic proposals that seek to highlight the aesthetic and discursive nature of images to tell a story and convey emotions to the public to promote the market of photographic art, the aforementioned media explained.
“The important thing about a photograph is to have what to tell and what to say,” said the organizer of the Lima Photo 2018, Gastón Deleau.
The exhibition includes photographs from artists from Argentina, Uruguay, Brazil, Bolivia, Cuba and Peru, as well as from France and Holland.
The novelty of this edition is the realization of a small photo book fair, in which the spectators will be able to enjoy proposals of El Ojo Ajeno, IK Projects, La Galería and Revolve, among others.
