The photo-documentary festival, DOCfield, returns to Barcelona

From the 19th of May to the 31st of July, Photographic Social Vision will present photo-documentary and photo-journalism exhibitions in 40 locations around the city

The collective Photographic Social Vision has once again organised the Barcelona documentary photography festival, DOCfield, formerly known as Circuit Fotogràfic. The name may have changed but the festival maintains its essence and has even introduced some new developments. From the 19th of May to the 31st of July a total of 40 art-related centres around the city will host photo-documentary and photo-journalism exhibitions.

Increasingly professional with every edition, the festival’s objective is to acquaint visitors with the work of international photo-journalists committed to the portrayal of diverse realities. Curated by Arianne Rinaldo, this year’s DOCfield, under the slogan ‘Behind open doors’, will include works from internationally-recognised festivals such as Visa Pour l’Image (France) and Cortona On The Move (Italy).

To cite but a few of the upcoming exhibitions, that of Nuria López in the documentary photography school CFD (Photo-Documentary Creation) portrays the current situation facing the Cuban homosexual community, that of Harri Pälviranta in the Galería H2O approaches the phenomenon of adolescents who perpetrate shootings in schools, Zed Nelson’s exhibition in the Palau Robert is a criticism of the concept of beauty in western society, while Arnau Bach presents a portrait of Parisian suburbs in the Institut Francès.

The series of exhibitions is designed to contribute to the importance of documentary photography and is complemented with numerous conferences, workshops and open-air night-time projections. For more information, consult the festival website or Facebook page.
