Photo by Sergei Svaitchenko from the exhibition “FOR CERTAIN BECAUSE…” at Galleri Naboløs
The art galleries and exhibition spaces are an important part of Copenhagen Photo Festival displaying contemporary art photography. There has thus always been an open invitation for galleries to participate in the festival. This year the number of participating galleries and exhibition spaceshas grown to more than 40, two of them are even Swedish. It is truly amazing and we are honored. Every year we are excited to see what the each gallery have planned for the festival – Copenhagen Photo Festival 2012 is no exception.
Galleri Naboløs – A New Collaboration
Last year the contemporary art photography gallery, Galleri Naboløs, had a small but beautiful exhibition in Photo City, Carlsberg. This year Galleri Naboløs has curated the exhibition, A WORLD A PART – a special selection from more than 4000 submitted works.
Galleri Naboløs also host their own exhibition with contemporary art photographer, Sergei Sviatchenko, FOR CERTAIN BECAUSE… in the city. The exhibition continues the work of Sergei Svaitchenko’s use of photography and collage elements, which are turned into a sharp contoured and sculptural expression.

Photography In Open Air at Carlsberg
Jens Haaning’s large photography ‘Aishia’ from 1999 is now on display for the first time in Copenhagen during Copenhagen Photo Festival and as part of the exhibition, Behind the Surface – Pictures From The Daily Life of Denmark, at Fotografisk Center. The picture has previously been on display in different European cities. ‘Aishia’ is a portrait of a Turkish girl living in Denmark. The 9×9 m large picture hangs on the facade of one of Carlsberg’s preserved brick buildings, thus creating a dialogue between the exhibition space and urban space. The picture is a monumental production of a Danish-Turkish girl.

Many of Elina Brotherus’ photos and works of video are self-portraits typically investigating the relationship between individual and space, both in relation to interiors as well as landscapes. Her motifs and themes are usually concerned with reflection for instance in the diptych-series Points of View on Landscape where she shows the role of the perspective in the way we perceive the world. Standing in the middle of a Nordic landscape, wearing orange trousers, a model (the artist herself) is photographed with her back against the camera and then laterally reversed facing the camera, photographed from the opposite direction. The same landscape and the same person, standing in the exact same place, but seen from two points of view
