Noorderlicht 2014 focuses on restless spirits. In a contemporary parallel to the vision of the Frisian author Jan Slauerhoff, the main exhibition looks at people around the world who want to think ‘outside the box’ and who, dissatisfied with the status quo, set out in search of alternatives. This year’s exhibition features Alex Masis’ outstanding project ‘Bhopal’s Second Disaster’ and will shown in The Netherlands and Singapore, during the Noorderlicht 2014 International Photofestival and the Singapore International Photography Festivals respectively.

For Noorderlicht, photography is a socially inspired medium which functions as a window on the world and can play a role in social discussions and processes. Our visual documents attempt to provide critical insight on current issues. With engagement and passion for the medium Noorderlicht brings Dutch and international audiences into contact with high-quality, socially committed photography from around the world.
