Copenhagen Photo Festival
Villa Kultur, Krausesvej 3
Copenhagen Photo Festival celebrates its 10 year anniversary on June 6-16 with a new festival center in the city’s new creative and culinary area, Refshaleøen, and exhibitions all over Copenhagen and Scania – a total of 64 exhibitions with more than 300 photographers.
The programme includes Mary Frey (US), Espen Rasmussen (NO), Per Bak Jensen (DK), Fiona Tan (NL), Keld Helmer-Petersen (DK), Mathias Svold & Ulrik Hasemann (DK) as well as solo exhibitions with talents chosen among 217 applicants: Franziska Gilli (IT), Marco Marzocchi (IT), Jana Sophia Nolle (DE), Mathias Løvgreen (DK) and Garrett O. Hansen (US).
Together with Reffen – Cph Street Food, a must-visit according to Lonely Planet, and Copenhagen Contemporary, we present a programme that not only celebrates Danish photography, but also takes relevant questions up for discussion. About xenophobia, staging reality through photography and photography as a form of art – in exciting new surroundings.
Celebrating photography in Copenhagen
Using the urban space and involving the citizens of Copenhagen is at the core of CPF. The anniversary will therefore focus on Danish photography via exhibitions and activities taking place in the city itself – from public transportation and the harbor to the city’s central squares, which builds upon the last 10 years of history celebrating photography in Copenhagen.
Copenhagen Photo Festival seeks to build bridges between documentary and fine art photography, which is done through our Framing-categories that focuses on universal themes instead of photographic genres. Framing Identity, Framing Society and Framing Vision each focuses on exhibitions and events dealing with respectively the individual, society and the medium.
Why do they hate?
In spring 2016 award-winning Norwegian photographer and photo editor Espen Rasmussen started a two year long journey through the darkest places in Europe and the U.S. He met fascists, Nazis, and other extreme nationalists. Two questions constantly arose: What drives these people? Why do they hate? White Rage is part of Framing Identity.
Between snapshots and staged photography
What is staged and what is not, when we e.g. see pictures on Instagram? Frey's pictures of the American middle class are located between snapshots and staged photography. They are very convincing yet distant. Is authenticity in photography a flexible thing and how must we deal with it? CPF will be showing selected works from Domestic Rituals and Real Life Dramas as part of Framing Society.
Photography as a form of art
The Censored Exhibition is a presentation of the newest within fine art photography. The works are selected by a jury based on the basis of an open call, and they show both the width of photography - as well as its many strengths as a medium. The exhibition features 25 photographers and is part of Framing Vision.
