WHAT IS REVELA’T

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 2017 it expands its area of ​​influence in Barcelona, ​​organizing Revela’T OFF and in 2018, the first winter edition of Revela’T Winter Madrid. This year we expanded the OFF to different cities and we hope that it continues to grow. In 2019 we made a first day at the Antiga Fàbrica Estrella Damm that revolved around “Photobook and other formats” and this 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, we take this iconic exhibition as the leitmotif for the eighth edition.

An exhibition that is part of the 50s, a convulsive decade with great socio-political phenomena such as the cold war, the nuclear threat; the fight against racial segregation in the US and South Africa; important political changes in Argentina and Cuba … At the same time, the so-called Humanist Photography is consolidated, which takes the person as the central axis, praising and valuing their qualities, their values, their spirit and their dignity.
