BredaPhoto 2016

From 15 September till 30 October 2016, the historical city center of Breda will be turned into an impressive photo gallery during the 7th edition of BredaPhoto International Photo Festival. For seven weeks, Breda will be all about photography with exhibitions of over 50 photographers and dozens of lectures, book presentations and activities for all ages.

The title of the 7th edition of BredaPhoto International Photo Festival is YOU. After decades of a welfare state for everyone, now has come the time for the flexible and resourceful individual. Many see this as an opportunity and begin their own start-ups. But self-sustainabilty is not always a choice. It can become a bitter necessity now the government is drawing back. BredaPhoto will reflect on both the advantages and disadvantages, the creativity and vulnerability of the self-sustaining individual.
