is organized by FOTOFO Foundation in Bratislava,
non-profit institution founded public and private support.
The first edition of the festival was held in 1990 and every
year the Month of Photography presents around 40 exhibitions of
the artists from different contries all over the world.
The festival programme lays stress on a systematic presentation
in the domain of photography in Central and Eastern Europe.
Bratislava has thus come to be an important meeting place of
photographers from East and West.
The exhibiton sites are not solely galleries and museums, but
also free places and ground with the aim to achieve the closest
possible contact with the viewer.
Forming part of the festival is a whole of accompanying events –
workshops, portfolio, conferences, review of films about
photography – that make the Month of Photography attractive not
only for the professional, but likewise the lay public.
