The Third Arkhangelsk International Photo Festival opened on May 20 at 18:00, in the exhibition gallery of the Arkhangelsk Union of Artists.

The theme of the festival and its exhibition is Perspectives.

The festival present artists who focus on the particular landscapes of the North (Sigfrid Hernes), others that take a look at the people living here (Igor Samolet) and yet others that try to grasp the history and the traditions (Natalia Egorova/Emilija Skarnulyte). Some of the works are more of a documentation or the result of artistic research (Margrethe Pettersen), while other works focus on aesthetics (Ina Otzko).

On May 21st at 14.00, Ina Otzko and Sigfrid Hernes will have artist talks. At 16.00, Igor Samolet will hold a lecture on Contemporary Art Photography in Russia.

Electric Cinema provides an extensive program during the whole exhibition period, including seminars, movie screenings and presentations.
