”Copenhagen Photo Festival underlines from its very first year, just how relevant the unbending photo art can be. And thus also why the festival should be an annual event on the Danish art scene.”
Matthias Hvass Borello, kunsten.nu. 2010.
“The festival celebrates photography throughout the city with a program that takes the interaction of contemporary art, everyday photography and urban space to a higher level.”
Camera Obscura Online Photography Magazine, 2011
“The experience of attending the Copenhagen Photo Festival was very productive. I saw great art exhibitions, met interesting artists and heard world-class scholarly lectures at the symposium. One of the best festivals I have attended.”
