PHotoEspaña’s success is for the most part due to its charismatic director, Claude Bussac, and the selections of its chief curator. After Sergio Mah, it is Cuban Gerardo Mosquera who is, for the next three years, the band-leader for this original festival devoted to photography and visual arts. With art world experience, this man without borders who can neither teach nor publish on his Island home (“I am in exile in my own country”) has provided meaning and sensuality to this 14th edition. Far from dogmatic terrorism, so common in France, and actors in this planetary hip way of life, Mosquera offers a modest and dynamic edition entitled Interfaces. Retrato y communicación.
