NOW WE LOOK FORWARD TO LANDSKRONA FOTO FESTIVAL 2017

We thoroughly enjoyed the 2016 edition of Landskrona Foto Festival, and the positive response and visitor surveys tells us that many of you did too. Soon we will release a small publication that documents this year’s festival. Amongst other things it will contain work by Martin Bogren, who documented and interpreted the ten festival days in a photographic series. If you would like to order a copy of the publication you can do so by emailing us at festival@landskronafoto.org

Now we look forward to next year, which will be Landskrona Foto Festivals fifth. In 2017 the festival will take place in September – between the 8th and the 17th. Save the date! We will keep you posted about the latest information and news about next year’s festival via the website, our newsletter and of course through our social channels. Enjoy our new YouTube channel with seminars, artist talks and interviews.

For the time being we will also keep the 2016 information here on the website to give you new visitors an idea of what the upcoming festival might be like. 

Welcome to Landskrona Foto Festival 2017.  


LANDSKRONA FOTO FESTIVAL
AUGUST 19–28 2016

Ten days of exhibitions, photobooks, seminars, portfolio reviews, artist talks and more. Since the start four years ago Landskrona Foto Festival has established its position as an international meeting place for photographers and those with an interest in photography. Renowned artists are exhibited alongside new, promising names and much of the work on display have never been shown in Sweden or Scandinavia before. We take photography seriously.

Photographers such as Duane Michals, Nan Goldin, Lars Tunbjörk and Tacita Dean have exhibited at previous festivals and the vision for the 2016 edition is as, if not more, ambitious. Under the artistic direction of Christian Caujolle and Jenny Nordquist we are looking forward to yet another year of exciting and innovative photography.

Welcome to Landskrona Foto Festival 2016.

INTERNATIONAL SEMINAR
MEDIA CONSUMPTION AND MEMORY LOSS IN A DIGITAL AGE

Friday August 19
10.00-16.00
Landskrona teater

Today, digital technology is available to everyone; billions of images are taken each year and thus everyone consider themselves to be a photographer. The huge number of pictures, which flow faster and faster through networks, become increasingly difficult to see and to understand. When mobile phones produce more images than cameras do, and when Leica deals with the Chinese manufacturer Huawei, our relationship to photography – and to the world – has deeply changed. This is not just a technological revolution; it’s probably a mutation in the perception and conception of the world through its representations. Speed has become a core value. We never created as many images as we do now, but we also never destroyed as many, right after they are taken.

What do these fundamental changes mean? The concept of time has changed radically, and the notions of memory and history are being questioned. Are we heading towards a society without memory?

Through analysis and experiences in the fields of photography, media and communication, we will discuss the future of a society where the experience of the world is no longer direct but through more and more ephemeral representations.


PROGRAMME

09:15–10:00 Registration – coffee is served.
10:00–11:00 Lecture by Fred Richtin
11:00– 12:00 Lecture by Dominique Roynette
12:00–13.30 Lunch

LANDSKRONA FOTO & BREADFIELD DUMMY AWARD 2016

Landskrona Foto & Breadfield Dummy Award was established in 2015 and is awarded the photographer with the most interesting Photo Book idea during Landskrona Foto Festival. 

The award means that the chosen photographer will have their “Dummy Project” published. The book will be printed, designed and distributed. The photographer will also receive a larger number of books to dispose over and sell. The prize is valued at approximately 15.000 euros.

Applications for the 2016 Dummy Award is now closed and the jury will hand-pick four nominees. These will present their book projects during Landskrona Foto Festival’s Open Bookdummy Review in front of an expert panel and audience on the 20th August 2016.

The nominated photo books will also be exhibited in the foyer of Landskrona Theatre during Landskrona Foto Festival 2016.

FINALISTS 2016

The shortlisted photographers who will join us in Landskrona for the Open Book Dummy Review and have the chance to win the Landskrona Foto & Breadfield Dummy Award are:

Brenda Moreno (MX)
Duccio Doretti (IT)
Hiro Tanaka (JP)
Constantin Schlachter (FR)

Thanks to all participants with all your fantastic dummies. Hope to see you all in Landskrona at the festival.

The international jury this year is:

Beate Cegielska (Galleri Image), Denmark
Christina de Middel (artist), Mexico
Nadya Sheremetova (FotoDepartement), Russia
Greger Ulf Nilsson (graphic designer), Sweden
Tony Kristensson (Breadfield), Sweden
Dominique Roynette (graphic designer), France

WINNER 2016

The winner of the Landskrona Foto & Breadfield Dummy Award 2016 is Duccio Doretti from Italy. 

The jury’s motivation: 

Duccio Doretti merges his photographs into the world of images.

What makes his work so intriguing is the subtly with which he questions the medium of photography with his own photographs and, simultaneously, questions the documentation of our collected histories.

His intentions are clear; man destroys and man creates. This is a story that is told in a close and personal way.

To present his narrative Duccio Doretti makes effective use of the book format, with all its possibilities and limitations.

 


PORTFOLIO REVIEW 2016

This year Landskrona Foto Festival will again be inviting photographers to a portfolio review. The primary purpose is that the show will lead to an offer to the participating photographers to exhibit their pictures at festivals and events around the world. For this reason, several curators from other international photo festivals will be acting as reviewers this year too. Previous years have seen good results, with participants having been invited to festivals in Derby, Leipzig, Dublin and Athens as a direct result of taking part in the review. Several photo books have also been published.

This year’s reviewers together select the »Best Portfolio«, allowing the winner to take part in the official exhibition programme during Landskrona Foto Festival 2017. 2014’s winner was Johan Österholm from Malmö and 2015’s winner was Johan Willner from Stockholm. 

 

The selected photographers/photo based artists will be paired with 7 out of the reviewers below for 20 minute sessions:

Anastasia Lepikhova (RU), independent curator in Moscow, Russia
Alison Nordstrom (US), curator at the photo festival in Lodz, Poland
Alnis Stakle (LV), curator at the photo festival in Riga, Latvia
