After many exhibitions cancelled or postponed at undetermined dates, this year I am very happy to have been selected to participate in the 4th International Photo Festival of Chania, in Crete, Greece.
It's my photos taken in Azerbaijan that have been selected and will be presented.
The festival will take place at the Center of the Mediterranean Architecture (CAM) in a building dating back from 1595, at the Old Harbor of Chania.
The building is known as the Grand Arsenali and was the biggest shipyard located in the Venetian port of Chania.
During its lifetime it has hosted many Public Services of the Town of Chania.
In 1997 started its renovation, which turned the building into one of the most important cultural centers in Crete.
Chania International Photo festival has been created by Maria Toutoudaki. Its aim is to gather more than 300 photographers from around the world each year, turning the town of Chania into an international centre of artistic expression focusing on photography.
During the last two years, we managed to make this festival an established international institution.
The Municipality of Chania responded favorably as a co organiser, offering the venues for the festival to be held.
