Berlin Foto Biennale Stills

STILLS OF THE BIENNALE (ALL EXHIBITED IMAGES).
Given the difficulties some people have experienced to download the stills of the Biennale we posted a few days ago (file was too large), you may now download the stills in smaller files. Click in https://spaces.hightail.com/receive/hgQ4v and you will be able to download all stills in 8 smaller files of no more than 200 MB each approximately. The video of the entire Biennale (also a very large file of 5GB) will be split in several smaller files, in a few days from now.

HEUTE IS DER LETZTE TAG. TODAY IS THE LAST DAY. The Berlin Foto Biennale comes to an end, and today it will be opened from 12 to 19 welcoming the last visitors of this unique visual endeavor. Thousands of visitors have enjoyed both the images of the Biennale and those of our guest, Steve McCurry. We thank all visitors for making this Biennale a unique event during the European Month of Photography. Selected images of the Biennale will itinerate next year to Hanoi, and a special competition will be done to select photographers to go to Vietnam (all expenses paid) and make images of the Heritage places and people of Vietnam. Today is the last day but actually not the end of this visual fest... it continues in Vietnam next year, and we encourage you to keep tuned for the competition that we will launch shortly to select those who will be invited to picture Vietnam and exhibit the results of their work.

Next week stills and videos of all exhibited images of the Biennale will be available here for download.

252 PHOTOGRAPHERS AND THEIR GUESTS ATTENDED THE GALA DINNER OF THE BERLIN FOTO BIENNALE.
Saturday 8, the third day of the Biennale, started with a press conference of Steve McCurry, followed by a meeting of Steve with some exhibitors. Later, at the Melia Berlin Hotel we had the chance to experience a great networking event. Some people stayed until midnight... We're happy for having been able to gather such an awesome group of talents in a friendly and rewarding experience. We feel that we have fulfilled our main goal: to give an exhibition space in a beautiful venue and to facilitate a climate of friendship among photographers.

OPENING HOURS AND ENTRANCE TICKET

We're only 37 days away from the opening of the largest exhibition of the European Month of Photography in Berlin, and most probably one of the largest exhibitions ever done in Europe.

The special section about the Holocaust and the Second Generation, the portfolios of the Young Emerging Talent Yusuke Suzuki of Aleppo and Lesbos, and the visual documents of Andrea Star Reese about the abuse of mental patients in Indonesia and the live of underground homeless people in New York, complement this fest of creativity and talent. The 24,000 square feet of exhibition space in the awesome Palazzo Italia (or Römisher Hof as it is called in Berlin) will be filled with different contemporary photographic approaches.

The Gala Awards thanks Magnum Photos and Steve McCurry for making possible the exhibition of his 130-works Retrospective in the venue of the Berlin Foto Biennale. We're proud to have him as a Special Guest, and for exhibiting this set of images for the very first time in Berlin. Caption of the Image: Peshawar, Pakistan, 2002. Copyright Steve McCurry/Magnum Photos.
Every photograph is an allegory. As soon as we have grasped the contents of an image our minds start to envisage a life before and after this decisive moment. Portraiture is especially responsive to the imaginary narratives we may weave around a picture. Each face is unique; we have never seen it before and we will never see it again. It is this newness of a portrait that compels us to construct stories. Yet, in doing so we often reach for the familiar. This young child had fled the civil war in Afghanistan and was living in Pakistan when McCurry took this picture. The delicate emerald shawl, her rich blue eyes and serene gaze all evoke a deep sense of the religious.

Christopher Ruane, who will be exhibiting in the Biennale, won the Black and White Charles Dodgson Award. He specializes in massive digital photomontages, sometimes with thousands of individual layers, each photographed and created separately. His work often focuses on the spiritual and contrasting human condition. Influences for his images come from nature, personal experiences, art history, and current events. The complexities of each piece are made to be studied to reveal an inner meaning and viewpoint about our culture, the current climate of the world and what we believe to be the truth of our origins.

25/08/2016

We are pleased that a portion of the proceeds of the sale of works of the exhibitors of the Biennial will be donated to Save the Children Germany, as we have done in previous editions of the Biennial to SthC Spain and Argentina. In these days where we witness an incredible and unbearable suffering of the children of many countries, we consider this donation, no matter how much it will be, an unavoidable task.

The image on the left was taken by Steve McCurry in 1979 when he was 29. He entered Afghanistan in the middle of the war with Russia and shot these Mujahideen, an image that was published by NY Times. The image on the right was shot by Yusuke Suzuki, awarded by the Biennale as Young Talent of the Year, As Steve did, Yusuke entered Afghanistan when he was only 22 and decided to change his guitar by a camera. He shot this image in Aleppo in 2013, he was 29, in the middle of the battle between the Free Syrian Army, whose soldiers gave him shelter, and the troops of the government. Two images that will be exhibited at the Berlin Foto Biennale giving testimony that war never ends, one belonging to Steve McCurry Retrospective, and the other of the exhibition Chaos in Aleppo.
