“Automated cameras, miniature de
vices the size of a grain of salt, cameras that capture odors
cameras in which the focus can be adjusted after the shot ... the new aesthetic possibil
ities of photography
have changed the way we look at the wor
ld. But a picture is still
a picture. Since
the camera is not a robot with
artificial intelligence, the human behind the machi
ne is still the crucial factor,”
says Krzysztof Candrowicz,
curator of the Triennial of Photography Hamburg,
the future of the image and of photography.
is the central theme of this year’
s Triennial of Photography, which will take place in Hamburg for the sixth

The Triennial of Photography Hamburg
In 1999, the first Triennial of Photography Hamburg, initiated by the photographer and collector F. C. Gundlach, took place at four museums and cultural institutions as well as forty galleries and other locations. At the last Triennial , in 2011, the number of e xhibitors had more than doubled and the shows attract ed over 200, 000 visitors. We hope to inte rest even more visitors with the extensive program of events and exhibitions this year , especially those organized by our European neighbo rs.
The topic for 2015
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. In an interdisciplinary cooperation, curators, artists, futurologists, and sociol ogists will build a bridge into the future and will evaluate the various aspects from different points of view.
Artistic director of the Triennial is the curator Krzysztof Candrowicz, who is responsible for the entire program of the international festival. Krzysztof Candrowicz, 35, is founder and director of the International Photofestival Łódź, the Foundation of Visual Education, and the Łódź Art Center, Poland. In 2004, he founded PhotoFestivalUnion, a network of thirty European pho to festivals. In additio n, Candrowicz is a guest curator and gives lectures at many European and international organizations.
