The first edition of the festival took place between 3 and 6 April 2014. Its first objective was to extend the photograph to the interior of the country with a quality proposal, which included the presence of prominent representatives of local and international photography. In that first experience the theme of the festival was “Us”, betting on the reflection on Latin American identity and daily life through photography. The curator of the festival was the Spanish Alejandro Castellote and selected authors from Argentina, Brazil, Ecuador, Peru and Uruguay for the central exhibitions of the festival.
