Om årets festival skriver kurator Zofia Cielatkowska:

“Touching the Distance, Thinking in Relation: Photography as a Practice of Seeing”, is focused on the issue of representation in photography: how does photography speak for or affect various important personal, social, and political issues? In other words, the photographic medium is considered a tool, witness, and register of how we see, connect, and relate to others and the world. The festival's books are grouped into four interconnected themes: (1) ‘Representation and Beyond’ investigates broadly defined portraiture; (2) ‘Photography and Words’ is devoted to a genre of books dealing with a particularly strong relationship between image and text – especially literary texts; (3) ‘Photography and Public Space’ focuses on the problematic question of who (and how) one is present in city public space, and finally (4) ‘Critical Contexts’ includes books that elaborate or comment on vital issues related to contemporary photography.
