Antwerp Photo – International Photography Festival
24th June 2018 at 10:00 am - 30th September 2018 at 5:00 pm BSTEUR16,5
AntwerpPhoto is an international photography biennial that showcases the latest in photography. With an elaborate festival week and high-profile exhibitions it inspires and invites visitors to dive into the world of photography and explore.
The first edition of AntwerpPhoto runs in the Loodswezen (Piloting Building) in Antwerp. The eclectic neo-Renaissance palace was designed in 1890. Until recently it was used as the base for Antwerp’s pilots, who guide ships safely and smoothly in and out of Antwerp’s port. The historic Loodswezen is being opened to the public for the first time and can be visited exclusively during AntwerpPhoto.
This edition houses four exhibits: an ambitious group exposition by Belgian photographers, an introduction to two winners of the Prix Carmignac, work by award-winning documentary photographer Michael Wolf and the legendary work of Anton Corbijn, including some previously unpublished pieces selected exclusively for AntwerpPhoto.
The exhibition is open from Wednesday till Sunday.
