Encontros da Imagem is a cultural photographic reference in Portugal, and has reached a prominent position in the international panorama, being currently one of the oldest photography festivals in Europe. Involving wide-ranging participation by Portuguese and foreign artists, the Encontros da imagem festival shows works in various areas of photography – including historical, documentary and conceptual photography. The 2018 edition will take place from the 21st of September to the 28th of October, 2018 in Braga, with parallel exhibitions happening in Barcelos, Guimarães and Porto.
The inspiration for this year's festival Encontros de Imagem, had came from a series of interviews produced by the Dutch Director Wim Kayzer, which invites the viewer to reflect on the concepts of “Beauty and Consolation”. The exhibitions are coordinated by the Museum of the Image and are held in various venues in the city, including the Casa dos Crivos, the Castle Keep, the Biscainhos Museum and the Monastery of Tibães.
