About us

BredaPhoto exhibits visual stories that inspire, move, confront, raise new questions, and demonstrate that photography is the artistic medium at the heart of society. It is a photo exhibition where you get the chance to view the work of national and international top photographers at unique indoor and outdoor locations in Breda. For seven weeks, the city is a life-size canvas that gives the photos an extra dimension.

Current, stimulating and original

During each edition, thousands of people enjoy the absolute peak of contemporary photography based on an internationally relevant social theme. BredaPhoto is therefore always current, stimulating and original. Not only in terms of content, but also because of the unique presentation of the works.

Children & young people
Through an extensive educational program for primary and secondary education, we make children and young people enthusiastic about current photography. Just as important: making a solid contribution to the growth of visual literacy among the youth.
