Rotterdam Photo
Festival 2022 XL EDITION.

Dates: 10th to 13th February 2022

Location: Holland Amerikaplein - Kop van Zuid next to Hotel New York


Unfortunately, due to an epidemiological situation, related to coronavirus disease (COVID-19), Rotterdam Photo 2021 didn’t take place (30th June – 4th July 2021). The next edition of the Rotterdam Photo 2022 XL will be held in February 2022, and we intend to make it as vibrant and big as never before. Our new format means more parties, more fun, more events, good food, more participating photographers, international collectors, curators, and creative people.

All photographers from Rotterdam Photo 2021 edition will become part of the new edition together with photographers who will be selected from THE HUMAN BLUEPRINT open call. 


For its 2022 XL edition, Rotterdam Photo is happy to announce the launch of the New Open Call - THE HUMAN BLUEPRINT


Following last year’s topic PLANET HUMAN, we continue to ask the same questions: Who are we, as human beings, besides the fact that we exist? What do we leave behind? How do we express ourselves? What is the role of our imperfections, the dark parts of our collective existence? Do they make us human?

Today, more than ever, the notion of being human is undergoing evolution. And this year we invite professional and amateur photographers to join us and think about the blueprints that we, as human beings, leave after us.
