FOTODOC is a venue where all those interested in documentary photography can attend exhibitions, discuss issues of interest and learn from each other.
FOTODOC sponsors ongoing meetings, master-classes, presentations, discussions and contests.
The Center aims at disseminating documentary photography as a form of modern art, as well as a tool for analyzing social issues; searching for new talents; bringing together all those interested in documentary photography, both professional photographers and amateurs to discuss the future of photography and the role photography and photographer play in society, explore photography techniques, and photography’s social and expressive values. FOTODOC finds it especially important to focus on socially beneficial visual projects.
FOTODOC regularly sponsors shows of world’s leading masters of documentary photography and young photographers, as well as displaying collections of rare images. Topics range from burning social issues and conflicts to ethnographic research.
