have you considered soros?  perhaps moving walls might be right?

The Moving Walls is the perfect place for this material.  Here is the link:


There are two on that page that might interest you.  The Moving Walls mounts the exhibit in their NYC offices, and then moves it to their Washington DC Offices.  The Documentary Photography Project grant underwrites exhibits that seek to bring the imagery back home to where the subjects of the photographs live.

And there are other organizations such as the Puffin Foundation that might consider exhibiting and underwriting the exhibit:


Private galleries are another matter.  I dont know if there are organizations based here in the States that concern themselves with the culture and society of Eastern Europe, like the Asia Society for Asia, or the Caribbean Culture Center for the Caribbean, or the Americas Society for So. America, but if so, these orgs might be induced to exhibit the material too.

In Barcelona, nothing but, www.golferichs.org  Elena or Maribel for the photography side, submissions are in September, or now before August Vacation for fall, and December for Spring.  Very nice ladies, cannot speak English or very very little, they speak Catalan or Spanish, 2 spaces on the premises, the main space in the Chalet in the past 3 years has been pretty much photojournalism, black and white prints, and some color.  Had some work of a photographer I really like, David Airob from LA Vanguardia, and some classes.  I really liked his works from Brazil about El Milangro de Candeal and how Carlinos Brown with music changed this barrio, etc.

Main City website is www.bcn.es  and a search for exhibition space should result in some information in regards to cccb, palau roberts, the above place golferichs, and there is one place that is stuck at the end of my mind, that  Alberto Garcia Alex did an exhibit north of the Diagonal near Palau Roberts.  I will have to get back to that one this weekend.
www.photography-now.com/artists    click on spain and then exhibits, and then barcelona, should give you a list of places another well known one is gallery H2O.  Info on this site as well.  www.h20.es  does different exhibits, but photojournalism as well, publications of works, etc……

There are several others as well, Palau Roberts  
Asia House on Diagonal, main focus is on Asia, so any photojournalist approach related to Asia and cultural exchange.

One of my main goals this fall in Barcelona, is really sit down and write down all the places I know there in BCN for exhibit space, gallery, museum, public and then transfer this back to lightstalkers, as well as some places in Bilbao, and San Sebastian.  The main work that I have seen exhibited has been work from Africa, Middle East, and South America.

Sorry for the quick random thoughts, but dig for this info.  I feel there are soooo many places in Barcelona that will exhibit your photojournalist work, just need to dig for it and I will work on getting a good list.  

ANOTHER important note, this year is www.sonimagfoto.com   convention at the FIRA there, not sure who is doing the exhibit stuff, something to check out.

In Toronto you can try the Stephen Bulger Gallery http://www.bulgergallery.com/

The city also hosts an annual photography festival that includes reportage http://www.contactphoto.com/

Hong Kong: The Hong Kong Arts Centre exhibits documentary work http://www.hkac.org.hk/online/e/home/index.html

FCC in Hong Kong has wall space and is probably a good resource to find other galleries in the territory. http://www.fcchk.org/

The venues that host the World Press Photo exhibitions around the world might be a good place to look as well. There’s a link on their site with a list.

Paul: here in Toronto Stephen Bulgery Gallery…they represent Larry Towell and show showed ran a 6-week exhibition of his work from the Middle East.  http://www.bulgergallery.com/   Toronto, in general, is a wasteland for photography galleries, especially documentary; however, the Annual Contact Festical swings the doors wide open and many galleries, or even the event coordinators early are interested in featuring good programs. You can contact them here: http://www.contactphoto.com/  …I also have connections with some people in Hong Kong…if you’re interested drop me a line. Good Luck. Cheers, Bob

By the way, is there any one knows about Larry Towell and where I can reach him?
I just contacted Magnum from who I’m wayting for a reply. And his website doesn’t say much.
Thanks everyone

Hello Paul,
Do you know the Centro Internazionale di Fotografia in Verona? They haven’t had photojournalism that often but when they’ve had it it has always been very good (actually Grazia Neri was involved in at least one of the exhibitions that featured 7 or 8 photographers). Here’s a link to their homepage http://www.comune.verona.it/scaviscaligeri/CIF.htm. The website seems a bit weird and dated but don’t be put off. The gallery space is really impressive.
Bye Silvia

Hello Paul, good to get in contact here with you. I admire very much the work you do. In Mexico City try “El Centro de la Imágen” www.conaculta.gob.mx/cimagen/ it is Mexico’s museum of photography and they show all kinds of work. It would also be very interesting to have you here for a few days giving a workshop, close to the day of the opening. Get in touch with the director Alejandro Castellanos direccion_ci@correo.conaculta.gob.mx, or with Estela Treviño who heads the investigative department : investigacion_cicorreo.conaculta.gob.mx The site is in Spanish. Good Luck!
