The 25th Noorderlicht International Photography Festival takes place from 23rd June until 23rd September in Museum Belvédère in Heerenveen and examines our ambiguous relationship with nature. IN VIVO takes its inspiration from a rich tradition of a love for nature and shows images of a confrontational beauty, which upon closer examination expose the extent to which our experience of nature is directed by economic, social and cultural shifts.
Thirty photographers from eleven different countries show us their view on the experience of nature, an essential part of our identity. Research has shown that nature has a positive influence on our health, lowers stress and stimulates creativity. Nature is therefore a significant contributing factor to our well-being, however cultivated it is. IN VIVO challenges the viewer to look in a different, layered way at the living experiment we call nature.
Opening on Saturday 23 June - guest speaker Caspar Janssen
On Saturday 23rd June at 16:00, the festival will be opened by Kees van der Meiden, director of Noorderlicht and Han Steenbruggen, director of Museum Belvédère. Accompanied by guest speaker Caspar Janssen, known for his Volkskrant column 'Caspar Loopt'.
