The 17th edition of the Noorderlicht Photofestival opens on September 5. On this website you will find the latest news about the programme.
On Saturday 25 September we will be launching the publication of Warzone.
5 Sept. - 31 Oct.
One of the main exhibitions of the festival is Land.
The exhibition takes stock of what remains of the old countryside idyll in a time of depopulation, a rising median age and agricultural mass production.
5 Sept. - 31 Oct.
Warzone was launched in 2010 and two previews were on show in May in De Nieuwe Kerk, Amsterdam and at the New York Photo Festival. During the Noorderlicht Photofestival Warzone is presented with the final exhibition and a book.
16 Oct. - 21 Nov.
This exhibition by Pieter Henket is part of Fantastic Photography. In various places around The Netherlands, from September 2010 to January 2011 the programme will be devoting attention to the role of the imagination in photography.
From October 16 Noorderlicht shows the outcome of the 2009 Post Middendorp photography commission. Photographer Jan-Dirk van der Burg made a photographic investigation of political 'fire' for this commission.
Monica Alcazar-Duarte has been working on her project The New Colonists for the past three years now. This has resulted in an interactive installation which reflects on the adventurous side of space exploration, promoting solidarity through emphasizing the import of meticulous preparations for such travels. Monica: “The object is very sci fi - like something that might go into space - and it is using the language of the extraordinary side of space exploration: very exotic and scientific. That is a trick because when you are attracted to it and you can be fascinated by it, but the inside is very mundane.”
Watch interviews with photographers from the main exhibition. They tell about their work, which we are showing during this year's festival.
