European Landscape Photography
Sense of Place
The emphasis of the 4th edition of the Summer of Photography, an international biennale that focuses on photography and related media, is on landscape. Central to the festival is the exhibition Sense of Place: European Landscape Photography at BOZAR, featuring 160 works by more than 40 photographers. The exhibition is divided into three main European regions (North, Central and Mediterranean) and explores the idea of the national and regional landscape in the context of a united Europe. Sense of Place is particularly poignant in the light of the current economic climate where the concept of a united Europe is on course to be significantly altered and disrupted. The exhibition features the work of Andreas Gursky, Massimo Vitali, Olafur Eliasson, Joan Fontcuberta, Pedro Cabrita Reis and Carl De Keyzer, each of whom provides a personal vision of the landscapes of their homeland. Sense of Place is on show from 14 June until 16 September.
