Mission and vision
The Centre was established in order to advance the understanding and appreciation of the art and practice of photography as a medium, through exhibitions, comprehensible education, seminars & workshops, publications and a variety of photographic events. Moreover, the Centre aims to encourage young and emerging photographers to engage and expand their knowledge and skills in photography, mainly through exhibitions, research and specialised education.
The Centre emerged out of the need of its founder, professional photographer Vassos Stylianou ABIPP - AMPA, to offer the opportunity to the Cypriot society to appreciate and perceive photography as an art form, while exploring its evolving role within a contemporary society.
