Valid Foto BCN is a project born from the initiative of 4 people who decide to open a space dedicated to the exhibition of photography and presentation of events related to the medium.
The gallery is directed by Fernando Peracho Murillo. Fernando's intention is to join the efforts of others, who, both in the present and in the past, try to make photography an object of interest to the uninitiated public and satisfy those who already have a knowledge about this art form. .
It is located on Calle Buenaventura Muñoz 6, on the corner of Avenida LLuis Companys, in the area known locally as Arco de Triunfo and part of the Eixample neighborhood. The closest metro exit is Arc de Triomf (Line 1). The gallery is close to the Ciutadella Park gardens, the Catalan Parliament, the Palace of Justice of Catalonia and the lively Borne district.
The gallery's commitment is to promote photography as the art form that it is. It presents and promotes artists in the same gallery space and outside of it, with presence in national and international fairs and events. Valid Foto is committed to giving its clients and the public who visit it expert advice and guidance on the photographic medium.
