Fotobokfestival Oslo is a week-long event which aims to explore the photobook as an artistic medium and phenomenon. The festival was established by The Norwegian Association of Fine Art Photographers (FFF) in 2009 and continues to feature widely recognized art photographers and young, new participants in photography, the photobook genre and publishing activity nationally and internationally. It takes place in Oslo every year and is free and open for all. For more information about the 2020 edition, click here.
FFF was initiated and established by Knut Evensen and Robert Meyer in 1974, in a time when lens-based art sought to be acknowledged as an artistic medium. FFF has since become a nationwide members' association dedicated to focused efforts for its members via art politics and art education, and through communicating the importance of art photography in Norway.
The 2020 festival was organized with the support from Norwegian Photographic Fund (Nofofo), Arts Council Norway, Oslo municipality, Fritt Ord Foundation, Norske Fagfotografers Fond, Bergesenstiftelsen and The Savings Bank Foundation DNB.
