American Photo Legends in Lodz

The Embassy is a proud sponsor of the 15th  International Festival of Photography in Lodz.

This year’s edition, lead again by the artistic director Alison Nordström, former curator of George Eastman House, will include works by two prominent figures of American photography: Robert Rauschenberg, one of the creators of pop-art, and David  Seymour or CHIM, one of the founders of the famous Magnum agency.

The International Photography Festival in Łódź will also feature a Grand Prix exhibition, over thirty smaller shows in the OFFROAD section, portfolio reviews, slideshows, workshops, and photo-walks.

A large section of the program will be devoted to photo-books: the Photo-Publication of the Year Award ceremony, and the presentation of books competing for the Aperture Awards, as well as film screenings on photography and photographers.
