From a broad range of submissions, the selection commission selected over 30 Single Image photographers to exhibit their work during Rotterdam Photo 2021. Both professional and amateur photographers reflect on the sub-theme 'A Room To Breathe, Speak & Act' which related to psychological balance, resilience, and creative adaptability that we all tried to find during these months of isolation this year. Millions of people faced different types of difficulties during this period, and social isolation only fostered stress, fear, and emotions of constant uncertainty. However, being locked in a ‘room’, many people had found new ways to express themselves – ‘breathe, speak, and act’. The exhibitions will be installed outside of the special separate panels at Nieuw - Mathenesse, Rotterdam (NL).
