The return of DOCfield: the Festival of Documentary Photography

The 4th edition of the festival features 30 exhibitions from the 19th of May to the 19th of July

A new edition of DOCfield, the Barcelona Festival of Documentary Photography, organized by the Photographic Social Vision Foundation, is now underway. The 2016 edition will feature 30 exhibitions of local and international documentary photography and photojournalism. As usual, the festival comes packed with parallel activities designed to bring photography closer to the public including visits to workshops and screenings in public spaces.

Standouts of the festival include the exhibitions Tout est possible. Victor Lustig, Paris 1925 (Galeria H20) by Maite Caramés, which is an image-based exploration of the life of professional scammer Victor Lustig in the Paris of the 1920s; The Walls of Europe (Pati Llimona Civic Centre), with images by five Fotomovimiento photographers who accompanied refugees and migrants on their trail through Europe; and Fence (Grisart Escola Internacional de Fotografia Barcelona) by Santi Palacios, which shows the violation of human rights on the border between the province of Nador, Morocco and the Spanish enclave of Melilla.

Among the parallel activities on offer we will find photography workshops and educational proposals adapted to all kinds of public, including children, teenagers, students and adults. One example is the family workshop Dear Europe, a creative activity designed to explore photographically in groups the concepts of the identity, values and future challenges of our continent.
