A picture taken by Iranian photographer Gohar Dashti is to be displayed at the 4th Fotofestival Mannheim Ludwigshafen Heidelberg in Berlin.
The 4th edition of Berlin's Fotofestival Mannheim Ludwigshafen Heidelberg is slated to exhibit a work by Iranian photographer Gohar Dashti.
The event will be held under the title of 'The Eye Is a Lonely Hunter: Images of Humankind' and will host photographers from several countries.
Ravi Agarwal (India), Said Atabekov (Uzbekistan), Plamen Bontchev (Bulgaria), Sofia Burchardi (Denmark), Boniface Mwangi (Kenya) and Jacob Holdt (Denmark) are among this year's participants.
Organizers of the exhibition describe the concept of this year's event as a “focus on the new and critical ways photography transports anthropological knowledge.”
The event “aims to be a photographic survey of the human condition as we enter the second decade of the 21st century, seen from a plurality of geographic angles,” they say.
The 4th edition of the festival “argues for photography's capacity to bear witness to the human condition and to human experience within real social and political conditions.”
The event will portray the key issues and challenges humanity faces today and will try to find out how a portrait of humankind would look like among different nations.
The 4th Fotofestival Mannheim Ludwigshafen Heidelberg will kick off at the Grim Museum in Berlin on February 11 and will run until April 1, 2012.
