RotDocFotoFest    Close to Home

Rotterdam, may 2010

Rotterdam Documentary Photography Festival in collaboration with 10 guestcurators.

In may 2010 the Rotterdam Documentary Foto Festival took place in 10 hotellobbies in Rotterdam.

By doing so the festival brought together documentary photography selected by 10 guestcurators, all with a very different approach to photography, and present these works in a space that is very much related to traveling and the consciousness of being somewhere else: the hotel lobby.
