PhotoBrussels Festival, organised by Hangar, is a major annual meeting devoted to photography, based on a meaningful theme.

A selection of international photographers and emerging young artists shows viewers what contemporary photography has to say about our time, its struggles, trends and aspirations. Nearly 200 photographies are exhibited in the Hangar Contemporary Art Centre, located in Châtelain, a cosmopolitan cultural district in the heart of Brussels.

PhotoBrussels festival also serves as an exchange platform to spark and confront ideas.
The exhibit is designed on the scale of a museum, and it will provide an opportunity to organise lectures and workshops where some major players (photographers, writers, art schools) are invited to attend.

The objective of PhotoBrussels Festival is to radiate throughout Brussels and then nationally and internationally, so the festival welcomes the participation of galleries and cultural centres. Eventually, an entire photographic tour will be offered to public.

PhotoBrussels Festival is open to the public for two months.
After landscapes, the second edition in 2017 will focus on the theme of photographic portraits.
