On the opening weekend of this year's Mannheim-Ludwigshafen-Heidelberg Photo Festival, the organisers held a Portfolio Review revolving around the theme of 'New Realities in Documentary Photography'. Open to all artists and photographers, the event was particularly aimed at photography, art and design students. Participants had the opportunity to discuss their work with the festival's exhibiting artists, as well as international curators, art critics and festival organisers.
The reviewers have determined three favourite portfolios, which will be on display at the Forum für Kunst in Heidelberg from 17 October to 15 November 2015. The exhibition opening takes place on 16 October from 20.00 onwards. The three winning photographers – Kirill Ovchinnikov (*1965), Herbert Naumann (*1950) and Julia Autz (*1988) – will be introduced by Benedikt Stegmayer, art historian and Director of the Essling Cultural Department.
