PORTRAITS – HELLERAU PHOTOGRAPHY AWARD
Nestling behind the Heller hills near Dresden, Germany, Hellerau became the first German garden city. It was here, in the middle of nowhere, that Heinrich Tessenow’s monumental Festspielhaus was opened more than a century ago. Up until World War I it attracted famous artists from all over the world, including Mary Wigman, George Bernard Shaw, Franz Kafka, Oskar Kokoschka, Sergei Diaghilev and many more.
Recently, the annual program of Hellerau’s performances of a variety of arts was enriched with another colour: the genre of portrait photography. Following the vision of the first owner, Émile Jaques-Dalcroze, an international portrait competition was launched.
In its second year, the competition will expand, and also feature several solo-shows in galleries all over Dresden.
