October 1st 2016 – October 29th 2016
European Month of Photography (EMOP) is the largest and one of the most prestigious European photo festivals founded in 2004 when photography enthusiasts in Berlin, Paris and Vienna decided to put photographic art at the center of public attention for a month at least every two years. In 2006, Bratislava, Moscow, Rome and Luxemburg joined the project. In 2012, the European photography network was expanded to include Budapest and Ljubljana, while Athens joined two years later. In October 2016, the audiences in these European capitals will enjoy amazing exhibitions in the renowned museums and galleries, as well as variety of culture events and shows that accompany the festivals.
Thomas von Wittich (b. 1983) moved to Berlin in 2008 already – not necessarily because he needed to escape the limitations implied by a small town like his native city Osnabrück, but because his passion for capturing the changes and interactions within an urban environment basically left him without any other option. In the course of his career he equally internalized the advantages a camera like a Leica R4 has to offer and flirted with the endless possibilities of digital photography. His current focus clearly lies in the fields of documentary, in which he puts the spotlight on these kind of protagonists that have significant reasons to convert the night into the day.
