The meaning of Montevideo Center of Photography (CDF) is to work from photography in order to stimulate reflection and critical thinking on social issues, promoting the debate on the formation of identities and contributing to the construction of citizenship. Based on these principles we develop diverse activities from plural perspectives and approaches.
We intend to be a reference institution at national and regional level, generating contents, activities, opportunities for exchange and development in the various areas that make up photography in a broad sense and to a diverse audience.
