Art is the expression of beauty. By the means of photography, we will witness this beauty for the third time from 5th to 12th October. On 2011, bringing together East &West, old &new together with the “Encounters” theme, last year the festival was carried out with the “Traces of Humanity” theme.
This year, The festival will carry out with the “ Colours of Life”. The life defines itself with contrasting colours such a beautiful photo frame… Colour of different lands, cultures, sufferings and happinesses is the life.
On the festival again, sometimes a feeling which cannot be told in a many page of text, life, will be perceived through photographs.
In 2011, as the first International Photography Festival of Bursa, BursaFotoFest brought together world and Turkish photographers in Bursa. Every yea photo artists from different countries gathers together with Bursa citizens and by such events like exhibitions, demonstrations and workshops have felt its authenticity.
I sincerely hope that the 3nd International Photography Festival of Bursa, which is jointly produced by Bursa Metropolitan Municipality, Bursa City Council and Bursa Photographic Art Society, will be a great success and I extend my best regards to all who participate.
Mayor of Bursa Metropolitan Municipality
