Selected Photographers 2020    

From a broad range of submissions, the jury selected over 30 photographers to exhibit their work, based on the theme TRANSITIONS, during Rotterdam Photo 2020. The both national and international selection reveals the intriguing works of photographers like Daniel Marquez, Annemie Martin and Nicola Moscelli. These selected photographers will display their work alongside renowned photographers such as Luuk Smits, who will be presenting images from his project From 119m below to 152m above (2019), Otto Snoek and Perrine Philomeen. 

Furthermore, Rotterdam Photo will be collaborating with several creative partners: Perth Centre of Photography, RAW Streetphoto Gallery and Lensculture, each showcasing their own installations and collaborations with photographers. The festival is also in partnership with Studio-OPPA this year, a fine art print and art digitization studio in Rotterdam. The exhibitions will be installed on both the inside and outside of the shipping containers at Deliplein.

Follow the couple I decided to upload these pictures as a reflection on the theme of this year edition, Transition. As stated by the call, we live today in a world where everything seems connected and cannot change without changing something else. It is a transitioning moment and many of the open worldwide crises seems to reflect the fear we might have towards change.
