Between August 30 and October 26, 2014, Noorderlicht Photography returns to the Fries Museum in Leeuwarden, which will host the 21st edition of the world-renowned festival for photography in their newly inaugurated building. The main exhibition ‘An Ocean of Possibilities’ is produced jointly with Singapore International Photography Festival (SIPF), and continues to travel there, where the exhibition will be shown from 30 October to 24 December 2014.

Saluting the work of Frisian author and poet Jan Slauerhoff, this year’s festival puts center stage those who think ‘outside the box’ and who, dissatisfied with the status quo, set out to seek alternatives, or create their own. An Ocean of Possiblities is dedicated to such ventures which underwrite the principle of freedom understood as our capacity to start something new, to do the unexpected, in a world where it feels as if nothing fundamental will ever change.
