For the fifth year in a row, people involved in Swedish photography will gather along
with international photographers in Landskrona for the Landskrona Foto Festival,
which runs this year from 8 to 17 September. There are over 40 events on the
programme, including artist talks, portfolio reviews, photobook days and workshops.

Jenny Nordquist, one of the two artistic leaders of Landskrona Foto Festival:

“One of the topics of this year’s festival is climate change, which can be experienced inthe major exhibition “Fukushima – No Go Zone” by the Frenchman Guillaume Bression and the Venezuelan Carlos Ayesta. The exhibition investigates the devastation caused
when the nuclear power station was destroyed by the tsunami in 2011, as a result of which more than 80,000 people were forced to pack a few belongings and follow the
order to evacuate. The artists, who were awarded the grand prize “New Discovery Award” for their series of pictures at the photo festival in Arles this summer, say themselves that
the exhibition in Landskrona is the biggest show of their work hitherto, and they look forward to seeing how the pictures will be received when they are presented in the old prison tower and along the moats of the citadel.”

Friday Focus: What role can visual art play in today’s climate change debate? As climate change transcend- ed the boundaries of science and environmentalism and became a major political, economic and social concern over the last decade, the number of artists addressing the issue has increased. We will explore how visual art can help broaden the public conversation and create a new pathway to understanding this critical issue.

French photographer Guillaume Bression will talk about the “Fukushima – No Go Zone” project, Polish photographer Kacper Kowalski will talk about his projects “Side Effects” and “Over” and Mandy Barker will talk about her project “Beyond Drifting: Imper- fectly Known Animals”, which draws attention to plastic pollution in the environment.

PORTFOLIO REVIEW 2017

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.

Previous winners:

2014’s winner was Johan Österholm from Malmö.

2015’s winner was Johan Willner from Stockholm. 

2016’s winner was Kacper Kowalski from Poland.

PHOTOBOOK DAYS

Most photographic works end up sooner or later in a photobook, and so we devote part of Landskrona Foto Festival to this phenomenon. The event, which we call Photobook Day, will be held on Saturday 9 September.

Landskrona Foto Dummy Award is a prize where the winner’s entry is designed, printed and distributed as a book. Four photographers are nominated and present their works during the day. A panel consisting of Maxwell Anderson, publisher and photographer, Sara Arvidsson, critic, and Stephen Gill, photographer, will discuss the works.

The winner of the prize for the Nordic Dummy Award from Norway will be announced.

The book market is open all weekend. This year it consists of small European publishers together with some Swedish photobook publishers and Fotobokhandeln Neva Books.

We exhibit the Paris Photo-Aperture Foundation PhotoBook Awards, one of the world’s most prestigious photobook prizes. Don’t miss this only chance in Sweden to see thirty-five of last year’s most acclaimed and talked-about photobooks.

Book exhibition with Svenska Fotobokspriset, Nordic Dummy Award, Landskrona Foto Dummy Award and an exhibition from the publisher Sailor Press, giving opportunities to browse and read a large number of current photobooks.

During the day photographers and publishers will talk about their books, photographers will sign their books and we end the day with a Pecha Kucha where ten or so photographers show their latest publications.

Welcome!

Breadfield and the blog OmFotoboken in collaboration with Landskrona Foto.

With support from Svenska fotografers förbund/Fotoförfattarna and Centrum för fotografi.
