About

Düsseldorf gets the biggest photo festival in North Rhine-Westphalia. Starting in February 2018, Duesseldorf Photo will present numerous exhibitions and events on historical and contemporary photography once a year. The first edition will take place from 16 to 25 February 2018.

 

For ten days Duesseldorf Photo will present around 50 museum and gallery exhibitions, curated satellite projects, art in public space, a international conference, a photo book fair, a film programme and portfolio reviews – and the work of more than 100 photographers throughout Düsseldorf.

Düsseldorf is a metropolis of photography. Many of the world’s most important photographers come from Düsseldorf and some of them still live here. Hilla and Bernd Becher have created a paradigm shift in the medium of photography at the art academy, a paradigm shift that still characterizes photography today. Their students such as Andreas Gursky, Axel Hütte, Thomas Struth, Thomas Ruff and Candida Höfer have written photographic history.
