NOOR Talk: Photojournalism and its future
September 22nd 2017 – 4-6pm – Entry free
Pakhuis de Zwijger, Piet Heinkade 179, 1019HC Amsterdam

Is the Photojournalism industry failing its photographers?


Photojournalists increasingly capture the attention of the art market as their images appear in galleries, museums and photo art fairs.

As there are more and more photographers around the world, photojournalists are faced with dwindling possibilities and an industry reluctant to pay for their work. Photojournalists are venturing into new markets to diversify income to keep producing work and tell new stories. Are Photo Art Fairs and the art market becoming a reliable source of sustainability for Photojournalism?


During Unseen, NOOR Agency and Foundation are happy to invite photojournalists, art buyers, representatives of the art world, and the general public to reflect on these developments. What are the implications of such developments on the quality of the work, on the stories being told, and other ethical considerations?


Speakers: Nina Berman, Tanya Habjouqa (NOOR), Hripsimé Visser (Stedelijk Museum), Emeric Glayse (Carmagniac Photojournalism Award) and Tristan Lund (Art Consultant, Curator for the Incite Project).

Moderated by Bertan Selim (Secretary to the Network Partner Committee, Coordinator Grants & Collaborations for the Prince Claus Fund)
