“One of the gems of the upcoming edition is a show that will be staged inside the Albert Hall Museum and we are excited at the prospect of inserting contemporary photography into this fascinating setting,” Dougall said in a statement released on Tuesday.
“Travel photography serves as the running thread through our exhibitions. Travel and photography have enjoyed a privileged relationship since the invention of the medium,” she said.
“During our opening weekend, talks by Laia Abril, Naveen Kishore, Sebastian Hau, Aaron Schuman and Lars Willumeit, among others, will highlight how this relationship is relevant even today,” she added.
