Rotterdam Photo, an annual photography event celebrating the wide spectrum of the medium, opens February 8th in The Netherlands. This year’s theme is FAKE | TRUTH, inspired by photography’s role as an allegedly objective medium, in the wake of recent worldwide discussions on the essence of truth. Where a photojournalist attempts to impact the crowd with a ‘truthful’ image, the conceptual artist might do the same with manipulated imagery. The selected photographers will exhibit their work in repurposed shipping containers and the public space of Rotterdam. In addition, the festival has organised talks, workshops, and exhibitions on digital screens throughout the city.
Rotterdam Photo is open from the 8th to the 11th of February at Deliplein, Rotterdam (NL).
