Description

Fotosommer Stuttgart, the now internationally established forum for contemporary photography began eight years ago as an exhibition project organized by committed photographers. As the largest festival in the German southwest of national and international renown it provides a survey of the current international photo scene as well as of regional tendencies. The award show of the festival encompasses a broad spectrum of works, ranging from artistic to documentary photography. From over 500 submissions for the international competition the jury chose the works of 31 photographers, including the three prize winners of the Südwestbank Fotosommer awards. The exhibition series “Fokus 0711” will display, under this year’s motto “Cult”, 24 different artistic positions that highlight the high quality and variety of photographic art in and around Stuttgart.

With its comprehensive programme the Fotosommer Stuttgart is one of the largest festivals of this kind in Europe. With large-format colour illustrations and knowledgeable articles, the accompanying book offers a comprehensive view of the current state of international photography – a treasure house of discoveries!
