Rotterdam Photo is an annual photo manifestation that takes place during Art Rotterdam Week, where art lovers have the opportunity to visit numerous art and design events. Located at Deliplein in the Katendrecht district, the event celebrates the wide spectrum of photography as it presents itself in our contemporary image culture. Together with the exhibitions at the Nederlands Fotomuseum and the fine art photography fair Haute Photographie, the 'Kop van Zuid' transforms into the one stop hub for photography fans, from 4 till 7 February 2021.
Each year Rotterdam Photo invites a wide gamut of independent photographers. From amateurs to fine art and from documentary to street, photographers are invited to submit their work via an open call that revolves around a current theme that is announced mid-September. Inspired by the history of Rotterdam as a port city, the festival provides the selected photographers with exhibition space in repurposed shipping containers and also uses the public space of Rotterdam to bring photography outside the 'white cube'.
