OPEN CALL EXHIBITION: A selection of international photographers exhibit their most iconic image of the recent eventful period.
A lot has happened in 2020; new history is written and documented. We think it is important to show these memorable periods of time in the new edition of our festival. From June to August 2020, everyone was welcome to register for the Open Call. We exhibit all kinds of different interpretations of our theme ‘Transitions’. These images have been carefully selected by our judges. We see these new talents as promising and unique.
From September 3 to September 20, 2020, Foto Festival Schiedam takes us on a journey of contemporary photography. With the theme ‘Transitions’, the festival presents a wide range of photographers who capture and investigate the constantly changing world of today. The differences between rich and poor and left and right seem to be growing, while different cultures and traditions influence each other in many ways. These contemporary transitions, such as the Covid19 crisis and the Brexit, are the common thread in the edition of Foto Festival Schiedam 2020. The seventh edition of the festival is characterized by the refreshing combination of different genres within photography. The photos are displayed at a special location in the historic city center and presented in spatial installations, an innovative form that is different from a typical photo on the wall.
