The BredaPhoto photo festival is entering its 10th year – an anniversary edition for the Biennale. The festival is probably rightly called the most important Photo festival in the Netherlands. It is equally one of the few festivals that do not abuse of the word “International”.
It is a reference for all the other festivals in the region. The mix of indoor and outdoor venues, large and small presentations, well-known and lesser-known names, is eagerly copied, but rarely (if ever) equalled.
Once again, BredaPhoto offers us 58 projects based on 61 artists spread over 14 locations. 61 artists from 4 continents: Europe 11 states, America 7 states, Asia 9 and Africa 2 states. The curatorial team has also changed significantly: 6 people from 3 continents, 3 from Asia, 2 from Europe and 1 from America.
With more than 80,000 visitors in previous editions, and even more than 20,000 tickets sold for the mini edition in 2020, BredaPhoto has a great reputation to uphold. To find out if this is the case in 2022, read our following contributions about the festival.
With the large number of exhibitions spread throughout the city, preparation is necessary. Either you choose a few places, or choose an itinerary with your selection of photographers, or you opt for a ‘slow visit’ and stay for several days in the charming town of Breda to get the full picture. Whichever you choose, you won’t be disappointed – because in our opinion, BredaPhoto is once again worth a visit!
