The Noorderlicht International Photofestival 2010 will open on Sunday, 5 September, in the Fries Museum. In Land - Country Life in the Urban Age, Noorderlicht looks at the consequences that urbanisation has for the countryside. Simultaneously, Warzone, an exhibition examining the experience of war on the part of soldiers dispatched to conflict areas, is to be seen in the Blokhuispoort. 

Land – Country Life in the Urban Age

Since the beginning of the 21st century, more than half of the world's population live in cities. What are the consequences of this shift for the countryside? Is it possible, against all economic logic, to accord new value to rural life? 3 photographers of the Agency VU ' are present on this event : Brigitte Grignet with "Chiloé - La Cruz del Sur", Ian Teh with "Traces" and Munem Wasif with "Munem Wasif (Bangladesh) – Blood Splinter of jute / Stone workers of Jaflong".


On the basis of work by top photographers including Ad van Denderen, Martin Specht, Paul Seawright, Peter van Agtmael and Antonin Kratochvil,Warzone pauses to examine the experience of soldiers who have been dispatched to conflict areas in recent history.
