Odesa Photo Days is an international festival and an educational platform dedicated to contemporary photography. Since 2015, the festival has been held annually in April in Odesa, Ukraine. The programme includes exhibitions, evening photo screenings, artist and curator talks, the Portfolio Review and the Open Mic presentation of photo projects.
In-between festival editions, the Odesa Photo Days team produces exhibition projects and educational activities both in Ukraine and abroad. The main goal of Odesa Photo Days is to popularize Ukrainian photography in the world and to encourage international collaboration between artists, curators, and cultural institutions.
In recent years, the festival team, led by curator Kateryna Radchenko, has organized more than 24 international exhibitions in Ukraine, showed works of Ukrainian photographers in 12 countries and participated in dozens of photographic events in both Europe and Asia.
