Backlight Photo Festival - Visit Tampere

Backlight Photo Festival

The Backlight Photo Festival is focused on documentary photography, yet still open to different artistic approaches. The festival promotes intercultural dialogue by focusing on revealing the hidden, the veiled, the lost and forgotten. Each Backlight forms a new, unique entity.
The Tampere-based Photographic Centre Nykyaika has organised the international triennial since 1987.

Väinö Linnan aukio 13, 33210 Tampere
