FUTURES Photography talents

Copenhagen Photo Festival wishes to shed light on emerging lens-based artists and photographers from the Nordics. In 2022 the focus is on talents from Denmark and Greenland. The festival’s programme committee has appointed five talents who represent the scope of current young fine art and documentary photography including video performance within the defined geographical area. We aim for talents at a state in their career where FUTURES’ international connections, professional feedback and the networking can boost or push the boundaries of the talents’ individual position. In the selection process the programme committee strives for inclusiveness, educational variation, thematic and genre-wise diversity, originality, and relevance. Besides those aspects, the group of talents must also represent a playful approach to lens-based technology and/or a curiosity towards considering photography within the frames of spatial realms.
