About the exhibition

The Festival’s main exhibition is a joint photography exhibition which is the result of an international, public, curatorial open call on the theme Revelations, which was judged by an international jury. As the finalists of this year’s festival, in September at the French Pavilion, the following authors will present their projects: Kirill Golovchenko (Germany), Gidon Levin (Israel), Maria Sturm and Cemre Yeşil (Germany/Turkey), Andrea and Magda (Italy/France), Anne Müchler and Nico Schmitz (Germany), Mario Brand (Germany), Qian Zhao (China), M. Scott Brauer (USA), Michal Siarek (Poland), and Pierre Liebaert (Belgium).

The finalists were selected by a jury composed of renowned names of Croatian and international photography, who will visit Zagreb in September: Louise Clements (UK), Lea Vene (Croatia), Simon Norfolk (UK), Phillip Toledano (USA), Donald Weber (Canada), and Gillian Wearing (UK).

This year’s selection of projects is versatile. Although most projects are exploratory works which use a documentary-conceptual approach, the final selection reflects various ways of contemplating the notion of revelations by exploring different subject matters and using different approaches.
