In 2013 Hel Ved and Pakhuis de Zwijger joined forces in order to present New Documentary pt. 1: a mini-festival dedicated to a new generation of documentary inspired photography. The concept was simple: a talent search, portfolio review, creative talks and one final exhibition. Prior to this festival we had a search for talent: the creative call, in which photographers submitted and shared their work.
Twenty creative directors from advertising, media as well as curators were present to review portfolios. An excellent jury: Huis Marseille museum of photography, Het Nederlands Fotomuseum Rotterdam, Unseen Photo Fair, Code Magazine & Hel Ved photographer’s agency&gallery. 15 best new documentary photographers were presented on stage. One winner announced: Sharieta Berghuis.
Secondly, to stimulate conversation on new development in documentary inspired photography, several speakers spoke on this topic at the Creative Talks.
Grand final: a three-floor exhibition on New Documetary#1 @Rozengracht.
This exhibition featured some of the best works of Hel Ved’s photographer-pool, also on display: the works of the winner of the creative call.
After a successful #1 event, New Documentary#2 coming up in December 2014: bigger and beyond borders.
