Copenhagen Photo Festival is glad to announce that the visionary Danish curator collective and Nordic platform for camera-based art, ATLA Platform, will present three new exhibitions by emerging Nordic artists at the festival center in June. All three have been developed through a process of individual mentorships with specialists from the Nordic photo scene.

“IMPACT” is a mentorship program implemented by the platform ATLA. The purpose is to support emerging artists in the field of lens-based media in the Nordic countries. The selected artists receive individual mentorship and financial support to be able to present an exhibition of new work at the festival center this summer. 

Four emerging artists will present three new exhibitions

  • Jasko Bobar and Sebastian T. Thorsted (DK)
  • Einar Mølmann Fulgem (NO)
  • Linnéa Cramer (SE)

They approach the medium of photography in vastly different ways. Still, they share an interest in investigating the impact of image culture and how imagery is read in today’s society. 

Six mentors will support the artists in the creation of their new works

Anna Clarén: visual artist and teacher (Nordens Fotoskola, Biskops-Arnö, Sweden) 

Alex Avgud: photographer and teacher 

Jenny Nordquist: artistic director (Landskrona Foto, Sweden)

Behzad Farazollahi: artist, curator and teacher

Cecilie Stephansen and Linnea Frandsen: ATLA
