The next Triennial of Photography Hamburg focuses on "future". The motto of the Triennial “THE DAY WILL COME”, a Biblical quotation, serves as an inspiration to imagine a future, a future of photography in a technical sense, but especially in terms of aesthetics. Questions are raised such as: How digital imagery influenced our society? Why do we produce billions of images a day? Did mobile phone cameras change our perception? What is the role of the photographer now? What is next after the digital revolution? In an interdisciplinary cooperation, curators, artists, futurologists, and sociologists will build a bridge into the future.
The Triennial of Photography Hamburg originates as an initiative of the photographer and collector F. C. Gundlach. Since 1999, the photo festival has taken place every third year in Hamburg, Germany, together with the city's major museums, cultural institutions, galleries and other organizers. Meanwhile, the Triennial of Photography Hamburg has become an important festival of international reputation. Besides a great variety of exhibitions under a common motto, the festival is presenting the whole range of photographic techniques and styles and is complemented by symposia, lectures, conferences, portfolio reviews, slideshows and much more. Since 2014, he main organizer of the Triennial is Deichtorhallen Hamburg GmbH.
