All Festivals

Overview exhibitions since 1996

Our lives are full of images, but what connects them? Every year Noorderlicht organises its International Photofestival, in which diverse photographic genres and series are welded into a thematic narrative, like chapters in a book. It may be about religion, conflict or globalisation, about wonder or a sense of space. About our world or worlds that might seem far removed from ours. Always working from the proposition that all our lives are ultimately interwoven with each other.

The location for the Noorderlicht International Photofestival alternates between Groningen and Friesland. It is a cultural event with both national and international stature. It is the festival for those who love photography.
