Rotterdam Photo Talks is an evening for photo enthusiasts and professionals, looking for perspectives that shed a new light on our contemporary image society. Whether the topics are trending, underexposed, or highly debated the program will investigate, various aspects of visual culture and the role of photography in it, through keynotes, Q&A's and presentations. This edition we continued to explore and be inspired by the notion of the photographic medium as a 'machina veritas', a topic that has kept the photography field busy ever since the 'invention' of photography in 1839.
Among our guest speakers were photographer Robin Butter, visual storyteller Jan Rosseel, photographer Lyle Branson, founder of Viewbook Rien Swagerman, photographer Rob Hornstra, photographer Peter Andrew Lusztyk and Derek Blais (Vice President, Associate Creative Director at BBDO).
Rotterdam Photo was moderated by Frits Gierstberg, curator of the Nederlands Fotomuseum and programmed together with Photo Talks coordinator Lise Straatsma.
