Photo festival Schiedam

Re: Search - Redefining the Lens: Unveiling the Role of Photographers as Modern-Day Researchers

Add to calendar:

Fotofestival Schiedam is an annual photo event where developments in photography are shown on the basis of a current theme. From October 18-28 the sixth edition takes place with the theme ReSearch. This edition marks the quest to explore the value and variety of roles that photography and photographers play as researchers in contemporary society. Simultaneously the festival will look at how photography can be used as a visual methodology in research disciplines such as science, technology, and the humanities. By presenting theme Re: Search, the festival offers a sample card of image makers and researchers whom, partly by their innate drive to opt for unexpected ways of seeing, help define the relationship between photography and the world yet again.  

Participating artists: Thó Simões (Angola; paintings, photography, installation), Lawrence Kwakye (photography, collages)
