The internationally-known photography exhibition will be available to see at the Synagogue Groningen
By Thomas Ansell
One of Groningen’s annual cultural highlights will return to the Synagogue during November: the NonFiction Photo Festival, featuring the World Press Photo exhibition. World Press Photo is a global competition that is run each year to judge the most striking image taken by a photojournalist across several categories. The exhibition runs from November 12 to December 5 at the Synagogue Groningen.
NonFiction Photo, the organisation behind Groningen’s festival, will also be showing work that they have compiled themselves along the theme ‘Fast vs Fair Fasion’, meaning that two exhibitions will be available to view at the same time.
Along with the photos themselves, the NonFiction Photo team have created a diverse education programme, including talks, debates, and themed tours. The festival is entirely run by volunteers, and more than 80 people have been involved for the 2021 edition. Anyone wishing to volunteer should contact email@example.com for more information.
Tickets for the festival will be made available in October, via nonfictionphoto.nl
