Rotterdam Photo Festival
Rotterdam Photo celebrates the work of independent photographers in one of the many iconic public spaces in the city of Rotterdam.
Celebrating the artistic life of Rotterdam
Rotterdam Photo, organised by Daguerre Foundation and More Productions, takes place at the most apt location possible in the maritime Katendrecht district of Rotterdam: Deliplein (Deli Square). Located near the Dutch Fotomuseum, one of the most popular museums in Rotterdam, this festival takes place during Art Rotterdam Week, drawing together many elements of the artistic life of Rotterdam.
