The Copenhagen Photo Festival is an annual early-summer event that places photography at the forefront with a week and a half of exhibitions, workshops, photography trips, portfolio reviews and more.
Taking place in collaboration with photographers in southern Sweden, which is just across the bridge, the festival is easy to enjoy, with photos and exhibits appearing across the city in unusual places, including the city’s public transport network and on various walls and fences.
The hub of the festival is based at the Festival Centre in Refshaleøen. Between 5–10 exhibitions will be taking place at any time throughout the festival’s 11-day run, and there will also be a stage for talks and debates about all things photographic. The festival wristband gives you access to all the exhibitions and talks over all eleven days.
With almost 50,000 people attending recent years’ events, in which over 3,000 Danish and foreign photographers of a myriad styles have displayed their works, this photo festival is developing fast.
