Welcome to a day of celebrating photography! We're taking the Photography Day back to it's roots and serve a full day event with exhibitions, lectures and activities. Everything with one foot in photo!
The Photography Day 2019 will be held on Sunday 18 August at Karljohansvern in Horten.
Preus Museum collaborates with the Norwegian photography organizations to create a day that shows the breadth of photography.
Did you know that the date is not randomly chosen? August 19 is considered the birthday of photography. It was the day the invention of Jacques Louis Mandé Daguerre was published to the whole world, an invention that would change the way we see the world."
This year's theme is Animalistic!
How are animals and wildlife interpreted in photography by nature photographers, documentaries, amateurs and artists?
We look forward to presenting an exciting theme through exhibitions, lectures and activities!
The juryed exhibition is an obvious part of the event - the hundred-meter-long wall of fame with a wide selection of submitted photographs.
Would you like to participate? The theme is "animalistic", but it is still possible to submit on a free basis (ie beyond the theme).
Deadline for submission is 29 May.
