Revela’T – an international photographic festival Barcelona
Revela’T is an international photographic festival that was born in Vilassar de Dalt, Barcelona, in 2013 and is positioned as an international reference in contemporary analog photography. In 2020 the common theme will be “Art, Creativity (and photography)”.
Revela’T does not want to give up anything, but advocates these other photographic procedures that require a calmer look and tempo, as well as to share experiences, knowledge, and establish contact and synergies with other people, institutions and projects.
This year’s motto is HUMANITY, A PORTRAIT OF THE PRESENT, coinciding with the 65th anniversary of The Family Of Man exhibition, curated by Edward Steichen.
With the 65th anniversary of the exhibition The Family of Man curated by Edward Steichen, the Revela’T International Analogue Photography Festival takes this iconic exhibition as leitmotiv for its eighth edition.
The Family of Man is centered in the 1950s, a turbulent decade with highly important sociopolitical events; the Cold War and its nuclear menace; racial segregation in the US and South Africa; political changes in Argentina and Cuba; among many other movements around the globe. Humanist Photography appeared as a response to this turbulence, a photography that places the person at its core, championing human qualities, virtues, spirit and dignity. This theme, with its marked social and documentary accent, portrays ordinary life, projecting a future charged with optimism.
