Noorderlicht | House of Photography is a many-faceted and international platform for any photographer who has a good story to tell. With a sharp eye for new developments, but averse to trends and hype, we devote attention to the photography of the world and to the world of photography. We do this by organising an annual photography festival , programming exhibitions in our photo gallery , organising photographic commissions and arranging 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 lands. With its distinctive, cutting-edge programming and outstanding publications, Noorderlicht has built up an international reputation as an institution that is able to couple engagement with visual beauty.
