What is Photography Day?

The goal of Photography Day is to further understanding and communication among the various practitioners and circumstances of photography in Norway, and to foster productive encounters.
The arrangements involve cooperation between Preus Museum and several major Norwegian photography organizations.

Photography is in focus, and Photography Day seeks to illuminate its broad range and give opportunities to experience it deeply. Amateurs and professionals alike will find something interesting that contributes to inspiration and new knowledge..

Theme

 

The theme for this year’s edition the Day of Photography is "The Humanistic Picture" - a way to understand the world through photography. The overriding questions are; How can photographs make a difference? Can a photo tell something new or different about the world we live in? Can films and photography affect how we look at the world? The world is changing and we wish to discuss this through lectures, films and exhibitions.

What can I experience on Photography Day?

Exhibitions

The celebration includes many photographic exhibitions, with Festival Exhibitors and the Juried Exhibition receiving greatest prominence.
This year's Festival Exhibitor Kyrre Lien shows 11 large photographs in an outdoor exhibition and also gives a lecture. 

 

The Juried exhibiton

is a giant collective effort in which amateurs and professionals submit works between March and May. A jury goes through the submissions and selects ca. 50 photographs which are shown in the large outdoor exhibition. On Photography Day the exhibitors gather with the pictures and hang them in assigned places. The exhibition demonstrates many modes of expression in photography. Find this year's exhibitors here.

 

 

Lectures

Exciting and interesting lecturers give new perspectives on the year's theme. The Festival Exhibitor is always one of the lecturers.
In addition the museum staff gives a behind-the-scenes look via lectures and shows from the collection 

Activities for large and small

A whole host of activities await you: classes, workshops and competitions, a portrait studio, theater presentations, used-equipment sales, picnics, music, food, and much more.
