Nine days of photography: the Copenhagen Photo Festival opens on 2 June 2016. For the seventh time, the Danish capital will present fine-art and documentary photography in a variety of venues – ranging from galleries, showrooms and museums to the three-kilometre-long construction fence of a new underground railway line, currently being built to run across the entire city.
The collective show The Censored Exhibition encompasses images by 20 different artists. Following an open call, 100 photographers from 16 countries originally submitted their work to be included in the exhibition, which is curated by photographer Trine Sondergaard, art critic Matthias Borello and gallery owner Banja Rathow.
Further shows feature the work of Elena Chernyshovas, Janus Engel, Andre Viking, Sofie Amalie Klougart, Nathalie Daoust, Lars Just and the artist-duo Putput, among many others. The organisers are especially pleased to present the project Picture the Music: over the course of three years, photojournalist Thomas Borberg, musician Lucy Love and the festival's founder, Rasmus Ranum, have combined pieces of music with landscape imagery. The results will now be showcased at the festival together with a corresponding book publication, and will be accompanied by an auction.
The Copenhagen Photo Festival takes place from 2 to 10 June. For further details visit www.copenhagenphotofestival.com.
