In June and July, a new initiative presents a selection of the best in current photojournalism
This year, the Photographic Social Vision Foundation has introduced a new initiative for the diffusion of photojournalism: Circuit 2013. Fotografia Documental Barcelona, which will bring free exhibitions to over thirty different museums, art centres, schools and galleries. The exhibition will be on display throughout the months of June and July.
The principle circuit includes the five main exhibitions presented by Visa pour l’Image, which will be hosted by La Virreina, the Espai Català Roca in the Casa Golferichs, the Centre Cívic Pati Llimona, the Institut Francès and the FNAC Triangle.
The Centre Cívic Golferichs will play host to the exhibition titled Sami: Walking with Reindeer, by Erika Larsen. The Sami are a semi-nomadic tribe who inhabit the Northern part of Scandinavia and Russia, close to the Arctic Circle. Erika Larsen’s photos explore the symbiotic relationship between these reindeer herders and their environment and their coexistence between modern and ancestral worlds. The exhibition can be seen from the 6th of June to the 26th of July.
Later on, from the 26th of June to the 27th of July, and from the 2nd to the 7th of September, The Centre Cívic Pati Limona will be hosting an exhibition titled Kurdistan: The Anger of a People without Rights, by Julien Goldstein. This is a project that Goldstein completed during his years in Kurdistan (2007 to 2011), between Turkey, Syria, Iran and Iraq, in an attempt to arrive at a better understanding of the reality of these people without a homeland. The Kurds are the largest existing group of people in this situation. On his travels between these countries, Goldstein submerged himself in the everyday life of this people to observe their way of living and better understand their hopes and dreams.
