Copenhagen Photo Festival 2016
For the seventh year in a row, June will be devoted to photography, when Copenhagen Photo Festival celebrates photography with an impressive array of exhibitions all over Copenhagen. You can experience vibrating music photos, experimental landscape shots, a peek inside the coldest and darkest region of Russia, snapshots from the harbor of Copenhagen – and a whole lot more.
Copenhagen Photo Festival is the largest photo event in Scandinavia, and this year the profile of the festival has been sharpened further, ensuring that the best, newest, and most thought-provoking images within art and documentary photography can be experienced all over the city; in galleries, museums, on the three and a half miles of green Metro construction walls known as ‘Byens Hegn’ (‘the Hedges of the City’), as well as independent exhibition rooms. The center of the festival is Photo City, which make up a series of exhibitions curated in collaboration with the exhibition committee of the festival – Jens Erdman Rasmussen from Peter Lav Gallery, Charlotte Præstgaard Schwartz, post.doc. at the University of Southern Denmark, and Søren Pagter, head of the photo journalism program at the Danish School of Media and Journalism. This year, Photo City has been placed at different and spectacular locations, which make up a photo route from downtown to Østerbro.
