Nordic Light | International Festival of Photography

Festivals | 06 May 2014 - 10 May 2014
 

Nordic Light International Festival of Photography is a one week international gathering that celebrates photography as an art. The festival’s philosophy is to bring photography out to the people, to define what is a good photography, but also to give the photography strength as a mean of communication. Other arts have always been a source of inspiration and knowledge for photography and in combination with world events, philosophy and cultural expressions, photography has become what it is today.

During the week of the festival the locals, international photographers, students, amateurs and pupils gather in what has become a melting point of photographic and cultural events. For those interested in photography, professional photographers are available for portfolio reviewing.

What they all have in common is the desire to explore the moment. In this act different types of photographers may increase their knowledge and understanding of photography as art. In addition cultural impulses as exhibitions, workshops, presentations, portfolio reading, breakfast cinema, Face to Face, literature and music are important cultural contributions to the photographers development.

The main goal of the Nordic Light International Festival of Photography’s is to create the most important meeting place for photography in Europe. A second aim is to contribute to a stronger engagement and higher understanding of a good photography. Nordic Light wants to be a spokesman of the photography’s purpose as a positive and creative activity. This may be avaible by continuously arranging workshops, conferences, exhibitions and seminars the whole year through.

Nordic Light  wants to take advantage of the competence, experience and knowledge obtained during its existence to become better and better. The organization is financed by national, municipal and local subsidies as well as private investors who all want to contribute to a vital cultural life with great variety.
