The exhibition features all of the photos selected by the jury, which includes thirty individual photos and eight series of five images and has just been opened in Lanzarote, after a showing in Santa Cruz de Tenerife. The exhibition is free to attend and the opening hours for the Convent of Santo Domingo are 10.00 to 15.00 every day except Saturday.
