The Festival Internacional de Fotografia Tijuana FiFT (Mexico) — is a platform to think about the image, its diverse circulation and channels of exhibition.
FiFT firmly believe in the importance of reflection around the image and its new means of production and distribution. It is a necessity to be critical and conscious when we stand in front of the new production paradigm in photography, one which hyper-visualizes our everyday life.
