Noorderlicht is a many-faceted and international platform for photography and other visual arts, with a sharp eye for new developments, but averse to trends and hype. We organise an annual photo festival, program exhibitions in our studio, photographic commissions and arrange discussions, lectures and masterclasses.  Noorderlicht provides an educational programme, and also publishes exceptional catalogues and photo books. Our exhibitions tour worldwide, and have been seen in the United States, Syria, Australia, Indonesia and other countries. With its distinctive, cutting-edge programming and outstanding publications, Noorderlicht has built up an international reputation as an institution that couples engagement with visual beauty.
