Organiser Francesc Fàbregas said the festival’s 2021 edition, its ninth, marked a “renewed commitment to diversity in programming”, which he framed as “creating a space to promote and showcase the richness of Spain’s contemporary visual culture”.

Few spots remain, and the Consell de Formentera president and tourism chief Alejandra Ferrer has encouraged any local adepts of photography not yet registered to sign up. Residents of Formentera pay half price.

Ferrer insisted that in terms of idyllic backdrops for photos, it doesn’t get much better than Formentera. Plus she highlighted the “respectful” brand of tourists that the October event draws, asserting that FF attendees “appreciate our idiosyncrasies and do their part to spread the word”.

Sponsored by the Consell de Formentera and brought to life under the direction of Francesc Fàbregas, Formentera Fotogràfica is envisaged as place where collective learning, reflection and creation mobilised through a mix of intimate sessions, both hands-on and theory-driven, led by prominent voices in contemporary photography and visual culture. The event is geared towards professionals, students and amateurs of imaging eager to exchange experiences face to face against a uniquely beautiful natural backdrop.
