THE EXHIBITIONS have been curated by Gilma Suárez (Director of FotoMuseo, the National Museum of Photography of Colombia); Nelson Ramírez de Arellano Conde (Director of Fototeca de Cuba, the National Gallery of Photography of Cuba), Cristina Chavarría (Cultural Affairs Director, Fototeca and La Fototropía [school], Guatemala), Patricia Mendoza (Director of Zul Ediciones [publishing], Mexico) and Sandro Oramas Maza (President of the National Centre of Photography, Venezuela).
