Noorderlicht International Photofestival

XXth edition - Noorderlicht celebrates contemporary photography

Since 1990 Noorderlicht has sought to enhance the Dutch and international photography community with outspoken and much discussed photo festivals. There were editions which aroused admiration and amazement, others that sparked off fierce discussion and reflection. By choosing powerful social themes, and also by turning its gaze on photography from less familiar regions, over the past two decades Noorderlicht has developed a unique and recognizable voice.

This year, for the twentieth time, we bring both the great names in photography and exciting new talent from home and abroad. It is however for the first time that we present not one but six exhibitions - at a whole new venue.

From now through 13 October, 2013
At the Old Sugar Factory
Groningen, The Netherlands

NOMAD – Noorderlicht presents SIPF

Asian photography of global stature from the Singapore International Photography Festival.
