Berlin, August 2016 - Throughout October 2016 Berlin welcomes once again the largest German

festival for photography, the 7th European Month of Photography. As Associated Partner of the EMOP

Berlin the first edition of the Berlin Foto Biennale - and 4th edition of the Biennial for Fine Art and

Documentary Photography - will take place at the elegant Palazzo Italia, situated in the historic heart

of Berlin. After Madrid, Buenos Aires and Malaga, Berlin was chosen as a new base to promote

emerging talents and established artists from all over the world.

Emotions and Commotions Across Cultures will present 1230 photos by 446 contemporary artists from

41 countries of all continents – among them 65% women, who have received the Julia Margaret

Cameron Award for Women Photographers.

The works represent a wide spectrum of styles ranging from documentary and wild life, to portrait and

experimental photography. Recognizing a wide array of artistic expression across diverse cultures, the

Biennial presents a contemporary overview of the different schools of thought emerging from the

United States to China, from Australia to Turkey and from Senegal to Mexico.

The Biennial also contains selected works by Steve McCurry. His solo exhibition 'Retrospective' forms

part of the Biennial as special invitee. An essay by the emerging young talent Yusuke Suzuki about

the refugee crisis on Lesbos and the chaos in Syria's Aleppo is also included in this comprehensive

photographic display.

The Biennial captures international trends in photography and presents us a kaleidoscope of

sentiments and perceptions. In this way a photographic chronicle of our time emerges with all its

emotions and commotions, visually expressed by hundreds of photographers across many cultures.

Part of the revenue from artwork sales will be donated to Save the Children. A catalogue published

by Kehrer Verlag accompanies the Biennial.
