Platform for art with a mission

We’re working on a secret mission to take over the world! But, until then, we’re trying to provide a platform for art with a mission, in a way so that everyone benefits.

NonFiction Photo believes in the power of exhibitions, education, talent and entrepreneurship. In view of that, NonFiction Photo presents and produces photography exhibitions and use our manifesto as a reference point.

NonFiction Photo presents the Zilveren Camera and the World Press Photo exhibitions in Groningen. These exhibit the best photos of press and documentary photographers both national and international.


How do we practise what we preach?

Schools the exhibition as your classroom

We like to empower the world through knowledge and that's why we provide guided tours of the exhibition in Dutch and English for VO, MBO, HBO and WO. Education packages are available in Dutch for VO and MBO.

Academy knowledge is power

Lectures, tours, workshops and events! Celebrated photographers, journalists and researchers talk about their work and vision in both Dutch and English.

Talent new blood and old knowledge

Art with a mission, talent and ambition: the magical recipe for mischief. Exhibit your work as a young maker; or help create the exhibition via the talent trajectory First NonFiction Photo, then the world!

Volunteers heroes

From production to promotion; front desk to education: (international) students, youngsters and old-timers help us to achieve our dreams and goals! Come and join the party as a tour guide, host or expert!
