Palma Photo 2012 was inaugurated one week ago, June 21st. Twenty galleries and museums dedicate some or all of their exhibition spaces to photography. Some of the photographic work is truly inspiring. At the CaixaForum, for instance, you can see some somber images of religious rites in Spain during the 1970s and ’80s (see photo above). At the Baluard Museu d’Art, portraits and still lifes are presented from the hand – and the eye – of Tony Catany, one of the most outstanding photographers alive in Mallorca (see photo below). Other galleries and exhibition spaces are: Aba Art, Altair, La Caja Blanca, Ferran Cano, Casal Solleric, Xavier Fiol, Maior, Horrach Moyá, Joan Oliver, Pelaires CCC, Fran Reus, SKL, Ses Voltes, Gabriel Vanrell, etc. Most exhibitions will be open until well into July. You could go and indulge yourself visually.
