Favorable reactions visitors and media

The reactions of visitors and media to the program were favorable. National newspaper Trouw headed for the Jos Jansen series at the festival: “Incomprehensibly beautiful: science in the picture”. National newspaper De Volkskrant judged the festival with no less than five stars: “The quality of their work is almost without exception great” and called it “… a grandiose festival”. National newspaper AD called the work of the photographers “a sampling of the current photography world” and local newspaper BN DeStem headlined “BredaPhoto gives food for thought”.

Highlights of 2018

One of the highlights was the video installation The Believers by Geert van Kesteren in the former prison Koepelvangenis which attracted more than 13,000 visitors. Another highlight according to visitors was the exhibition in the former Backer & Rueb factories in the Belcrum where, among other things, work by the African photographer Keyezua was shown. Eye-catcher at the Chassé Park this year was the open air museum The Infinity Path designed by architects MVRDV. There was also the most photographed image by the public and shared on social media: the image made by Osborne Macharia of the Nigerian animal whisperer of the Hausa tribe in brightly colored tailor-made suit with his monkey as a companion.
