Image-rich contemporary exhibitions at the Helmut Newton Foundation and the Reinbeckhallen Foundation will showcase the current transformation and working methods of the famous photographer's agency Magnum Photos as well as iconic star photographs from Hollywood's heyday as part of the BERLIN PHOTO WEEK.

imaging festival for everyone who loves photography

BERLIN PHOTO WEEK has been taking place in Berlin since 2018 and sees itself as an imaging festival for everyone who loves photography. The intention of BERLIN PHOTO WEEK is to define and show photography as a cultural asset on the one hand and as a socially relevant mass phenomenon on the other. Accordingly, the focus is on creating extraordinary photo moments through funplaces, photowalks and workshops, as well as inspiring offerings such as exhibitions, conferences, talks, networking events and image shows.
BERLIN PHOTO WEEK is a close partner of the international consumer electronics trade show IFA (September 2-6 at the Berlin Exhibition Grounds), which takes place at the same time.

The event and exhibition fireworks around the 75th anniversary of Magnum Photos will take place in the main location of this year's BPW, the Arena Berlin, as well as in numerous partner institutions such as the Helmut Newton Foundation, Reinbeckhallen, CHAUSSEE 36, Loock Galerie and Robert Morat Galerie.
