WHO WE ARE
IMAGO LISBOA Photo Festival is organized by Cedilhas e Legendas - a non-profit cultural association. We are a group of people who have in the visual arts, and particularly in photography, their cultural militancy tool. With distinct paths in the cultural area, the common interest in images brought us together and awakened the desire to move forward with this project.
Photography has gained increasing recognition in the field of visual arts and respective markets. Its functionality is diverse and complex. In addition to the arts, the photographic record is also linked to history, anthropology and science in general.
IMAGO LISBOA wants to contribute to:
Disseminate established and emerging authors.
Promote contemporary photography without forgetting the knowledge of classical authors.
Promote reflection around the different territories of photography.
To create a grid platform for the dissemination of younger authors.
To be a safe place for knowledge, construction, equality and freedom.
