The festival centre is now closed, but Copenhagen Photo Festival is still running until the 30th of June at our CPF Official Partners' venues all over Copenhagen and Southern Sweden!

2021 programme

This year, the festival focuses on new forms of exhibiting, new ways of using photography, and features work from both established and emerging artists, who get a creative outlet through the festival, where their raw uncut creativity is on full display.
During the 11 days of festival, a lot of activities happened: DJ sets performed by famous local figures during the Apéro, book signings, workshops, talks, yoga classes and much more for both kids and adults alike.

Three focal points

Identity. Society. Vision.

The six solo artists at Copenhagen Photo Festival are selected as this year’s headliners of our three focal points: Framing Identity, Framing Society and Framing Vision. They are our way of opening up windows to other worlds and serve the purpose of showcasing photography across genres, by focusing on the individual, society and art.

Out of 642 projects, and thereof 12 shortlisted, the six chosen artists stand as the epitome of each category.

Alastair Philip Wiper From the series Pleasure Points (2019)
Ute Behrend From the series Back to nature (2018-2020)
Ira Lupu From the series On Dreams and Screens (2020)
