Fotobokfestival Oslo is a week-long event which aims to explore the photo book as an artistic medium and phenomenon. The festival was established by The Norwegian Association of Fine Art Photographers (FFF) in 2009. Since its beginning, it has continued to feature widely recognized art photographers and young, new participants in photography, the photo book genre and publishing activity nationally and internationally. The festival takes place in Oslo every year and is free and open for all. Also connected to the festival is a satellite program where relevant participants participate to the festival with their own events.
Forbundet Frie Fotografer
The Norwegian Association of Fine Arts Photographers (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.
