Reportage Festival and Photographer Raphaela Rosella to be Featured at this year’s Noorderlicht Festival – September 1 to October 13, 2013

Tuesday, August 20th, 2013

Reportage Festival is proud to announce that it has been invited by  Noorderlicht to be one of twenty international photographic institutions to present the work of an emerging photographer at the upcoming Festival in September; celebrating the twentieth edition of the Photo Festival in The Netherlands.

The exhibition 20|20 titled so references the 20th anniversary of the Festival but also ‘ ‘20|20 vision’, the sharp gaze on the world that Noorderlicht and the other twenty institutions strive for.’

Oculi photographer Raphaela Rosella featured in this year’s Festival has been selected to represent Australia and Reportage as emerging talent at Noorderlicht with her work ‘We Met a Little Early but I Get to Love you Longer’

All Noorderlicht exhibitions will be held at a new venue just outside the city centre of Groningen: the old Sugar Factory.
More highlights to come in the following weeks but if you are in The Netherlands at this time it is definitely an event worth attending.

1 Sep – 13 Oct 2013


A world of photography 

 ‘Noorderlicht is an internationally oriented institute for photography that provides a podium for talented photographers from all corners of the earth. That was demonstrated in the much-praised festivals focusing on photography from the Arab world and Africa, among other events. To celebrate the twentieth edition, Noorderlicht asked twenty institutions from all around the world to make a presentation for themselves in 20|20. Those selected are all institutions to which Noorderlicht feels akin, because they, like Noorderlicht, make their own exhibitions and work in a narrative manner. Each institution is presenting the work of one photographer who is still unknown outside his or her own country, who exemplifies photographic developments in that region. The title refers not only to the 20th anniversary, but also to ‘20|20 vision’, the sharp gaze on the world that Noorderlicht and the other twenty institutions strive for.’

The three exhibitions include an installation exhibition of Magnum photographer Bruce Gilden and his work Foreclosures in America presented by Magnum Foundation in co-ordination with Photoville, the second exhibition will highlight the work of talented Brooklyn photographer Russell Frederick with his work ‘Dying Breed’, lastly the third exhibition ‘Cruel and Unusual’ featured in a massive 40 foot container features work curated by Noorderlicht curators Hester Keijser and Pete Brook, featuring the work of 11 diverse photographers.
