PHoto España: visions of the city from the perspective of Covid-19

COVID-19. The City Council is joining in with the festival initiative for people to photograph public space while they have to stay at home.

We’re joining in with the PHoto España festival to photograph the city from balconies and windows which are taking on a new meaning with the confinement period for Covid-19. The idea is to pay homage to citizens for their solidarity, effort and commitment.

Anyone wishing to take part should follow the @photoespana festival account on Instagram, post their photos using the hashtags #PHEdesdemibalcón and #PHE20 and mention the Photo España profile.

From all the images posted before the deadline of 17 May, a selection will be made and displayed from the balconies in a square in each of the 21 participating cities, once the confinement period ends.

The display will mark the start of the 23rd edition of the festival, held in Madrid and due run through the whole summer this year, from June to September.
