On the 12th January Zurich will host a huge five-day photography exhibition that is billed as the largest in Europe. Taking place at StageOne and Halle 622 in Zürich-Oerlikon photo18 Zürich will showcase the work of over 200 Swiss and international photographers across surface space measuring 7000m2. That's almost two acres!
Last year photo18 Zürich welcomed over a staggering 27,000 visitors through its doors, showcasing a wide range of stunning photographic work from portraits and landscapes to experimental imagery and documentary photography. This year there will be more of the same, plus a host of connected events and activities including 13 special exhibitions, the Photographer of the Year Award ceremony, plus a PhotoSchool with over 120 workshops and a conference area called the PhotoForum.
At the PhotoForum visitors will encounter some of the world's most renowned photographers share their life, work experience and inspirations. This year's lineup will include world-famous photographers such as Roger Ballen, Michel Comte, astrophysicist Ben Moore (who showcases jawdropping images from outer space) and a whole host of others who will participate in discussion panels at the event.
It's one not to be missed, so make sure you focus your attention and pick up your ticket in a flash.
Tickets range from CHF 25 for one day to CHF 108.00 for the whole five days (not including photoForum). Tickets are available via this link - NB: A small charge will be added for online ticket purchases.
