Triennal of Photography

Hamburg, Germany
A BREAKING POINT is a critical moment in the process of change. It is a time when we can no longer search for new goals or values but must immediately take a new direction. Photography has an ability to freeze time and bring focus to such moments. The Triennial of Photography Hamburg will be an attempt to raise awareness. The festival program is a humanistic statement on sustainability and change. It is an inspiration and an invitation to act. We use keyboard commands hundreds of times a day without thinking about their original meaning.

Borough High St

If you are an up-and-coming photographer looking for your first break or an enthusiastic hobbyist wanting to show your works to the world, the London Photo Festival is for you. Founded in 2011, the London Photo Festival was set up by Emma Mapp and Kit Shah to give fellow new and emerging photographers an affordable way to display their art. We believe in giving new and emerging photographers a chance they would rarely get elsewhere: the opportunity to exhibit their work in a relaxed, professional environment. Unlike other galleries, exhibitions and festivals, we do not judge your work – as long as it is not offensive, we will display it. All you have to do is pay a small fee.
