The International Nature Photography Festival is coming up soon, and for the 26th time the town on the river Lippe will turn into the centre for nature photographers from all over the world. As always, there will be a diverse lecture programme by national and international photographers covering the broad range of what nature photography today has to offer.
Join Carlton Ward Jr. to discover the unknown aspects of Florida and follow Theo Bosboom to Europe's wild coasts. Have Bruno D'Amicis let you in on the secret of Europe's oldest beech trees and listen to a Norwegian tale of whales and herring by Espen Bergersen. Klaus Nigge will report on the largest bird of the world, and Javier Aznar González de Rueda takes you to the world of small creatures in the rainforests of Ecuador. Take a flight with Milan Radisics across magnificent waterworlds and allow yourself to be captivated by diverse urban life, successful re-introduction programmes, blooming military training areas, animal suffering in the age of the Anthropocene, aesthetics found in ice and abstract plant worlds.
To meet our ambition of international exchange, there will be simultaneous interpreting of all the lectures during the festival and the possibility to listen to them in either German or English via headphones.
The large photo market with more than 70 vendors offers tried and tested items as well as the latest developments in camera technology, travel and specialist literature. And this year will also see plenty of additional exhibitions with images to enchant, surprise and trigger reflectiveness.
So, join us in our happy anticipation of 26th edition of the GDT International Nature Photography Festival!
