Lens Culture is delighted to be participating in the first Risor International Photo Festival, in Risor Norway, August 12-16. Photographers Roger Ballen and Neo Ntsoma from South Africa will be the special guests of honor. Many other internationally-known photographers, as well as up-and-coming Norwegian photographers will exhibit their work, hold lectures and give workshops in this charming city south of Oslo.
There will be exhibitions in galleries, museums, hotels, as well as in a sanctuary, a fire tower, shops and outdoor exhibition spaces. The Photo Program HiO, Photo College, and BILDER Nordic School of Photography will all participate. The festival is organized by the Risor Artist Council: Tore Holter, editor of the magazine and website FOTOGRAFI, Rolf M. Aagaard, an experienced photographer from Risør, and Ellen-K.Syverstad.
More information to be found at, where the text is mostly in Norwegian, but includes links to many of the participating photographers — some very interesting new discoveries!
