The Copenhagen Photo Festival is back for its sixth year with more artists than ever. Featuring both Scandinavian and international photographers, this is the largest photography festival in Northern Europe. Most of the events and exhibitions are free – it’s a wonderful opportunity to see emerging artists and exciting work.

Character #IV: Anna Aurora Astrup by Tonje Bøe Birkeland

Kirkland’s character studies examine the space between reality and recorded history, as well as the price of progress. In this series, she takes on explorer Astrup and questions the way in which women have been erased from parts of history typically reserved for men.

Peripheral Vision

This group show is comprised of the work of young artists Lotte Fløe Christensen, Desmond Church, Sam Derounian and Ditte Knus Tønnesen.

Everyday Randomness at Kontorprojects

Rabe’s photographs of every day moments, placed next to each other with little context or relationship, function as more of an anthropological study than an exhibit. The overall effect is a rendering of how photography can capture our universe in flashes, rather than as a narrative.
