The second international group exhibition of the festival, PULSE, shows the poetic responses of sixteen photographers to the world around them. In what has now become a classical, timeless way of taking photographs, in which references to photographers such as Daido Moriyama and William Klein can be identified, the intuitive and grating work of these photographers is diametrically opposed to DATA RUSH, and at the same time enters into a dialogue with it.

Within Pulse, in collaboration with Fotobookfestival Kassel, Noorderlicht exhibits the project On Daido for the first time as an exhibition. This homage to Moriyama, and a tribute to photography in the broader sense, includes work by Antoine D'Agata, Rinko Kawauchi, Ken Schles, Anders Petersen and Alec Soth, among others.
