PHotoEspaña 2015

With some 100 exhibitions in venues throughout Madrid, the 2015 PHotoEspaña festival is once again an eclectic but unified collection of visual fare. While the overall scope is defined by geography—most shows feature photographers from Latin America—the prominent theme is femininity: both as a mode of view and as an object of desire. Several exhibitions feature the work of assertive female artists; one key show focuses on beautiful women through the lens of an admiring male. As one of the journalists jokingly commented during press week: “We have the strong women and the womanizer.”
