This year’s edition of the Helsinki Photo Festival seeks to create a unique art experience in the Finnish capital, on the theme ‘Fearless’. The festival is increasing accessibility during the pandemic by exhibiting in outdoor art centres, museums, warehouses, parks and waterfront areas around Greater Helsinki and by hosting events 24/7. Alongside work by 40-plus photographers selected from an open call, there’s a solo exhibition by Spanish photographer David Barreira (winner of the festival’s first portfolio reviews in 2020). The programme also includes artist talks, workshops, seminars and a forum to foster connections between international photographers, both professional and amateur. The Nordic Village showcases emerging Nordic talent, with the spotlight on Finnish photographer Svante Gullichsen.
