Dear readers, 

The Noorderlicht team wishes you a Happy New Year!

We hope to inspire you again in 2011 with interesting and beautiful stories from the world of photography.

Thus at the start of this new year we are pleased to inform you about the upcoming activities at Noorderlicht.
In this newsletter: notice of Popview 2011 & Olaf Heine, a call for submissions for a new photography project, and more!

Popview 2011 & Olaf Heine

Starts 14 January

Again this year two exhibitions of pop photography will be opening in the Noorderlicht Photogallery during the Eurosonic Noorderslag music festival. POPVIEW 2011 shows the work of the eight nominees for the Lex van Rossen Award 2011. The solo exhibition 'I Love You but I’ve Chosen Rock' by Olaf Heine reads like a visual diary, with intriguing portraits of international pop and rock greats.

Opening: Thursday, 13  January, at 5:00 p.m., by Luck Fonz III, songwriter and performer. DJ 645 provides the musical setting, and we have a special acoustic performance from the Danish band Annasaid.

Photography project on globalisation and sugar

Call for submissions

After a research phase Noorderlicht has started the documentary photography project The Sweet and Sour Story of Sugar. In this project we take up the challenge of investigating the forces of the ‘global economy’ from the perspective of one commodity: sugar. 

The focus in The Sweet and Sour Story of Sugar is on sugar production in The Netherlands and its former colonies, Surinam, Indonesia and north-east Brazil. Where Surinam and Indonesia once used to be major players in the sugar industry, now they cannot beat the fierce competition from low-cost producers like Brazil. After sweeping agricultural reform in the European Union in 2006, even very technologically advanced production locations such as  The Netherlands are staggering.

Noorderlicht invites photographers to submit work related to the sugar industry in these four countries. More information on specific topics can be found on our website.
