Dutch Perspective on documentary photography. Panel Discussion

Dutch Perspective on documentary photography. Panel Discussion


The aim is to accompany the ‘Dutch Perspectives’ exhibition by a live photographic debate organized as a panel discussion, in which the invited Dutch Photographers Olivier van Hartingsveldt and David Hup will interact with the audience and each other about (but not limited to) different ways of telling visual narratives, how to create a powerful documentary series, how images are supporting text in an article based on documentary photography, what makes a documentary image relevant. Their sub-theme at the festival is the interaction between humans and animals, either domesticated (Olivier) or wild (David), from the perspective of co-habiting a given environment. The debate will be moderated by the festival director and the guest curator. The aim is to also invite 1-2 Romanian documentary photographers to participate in the panel of discussants on stage. The photographers will have the opportunity to highlight their opinions with images on a screen, making the discussion more lively and offering the audience a visual journey through the photographer’s practice and artistic point of view.
