ABOUT MATTIAS KLUM


Mattias Klum was born in Uppsala, Sweden, in 1968. He started taking pictures as a teenager, and since 1986 he has worked full-time as a freelance photographer. In an artistic way that is entirely his own, Klum has described and portrayed animals, plants, and natural and cultural settings in the form of articles, books, films, and exhibitions.

A coveted lecturer worldwide, Klum’s work has been published in a large number of international magazines, such as National Geographic, Wildlife Conservation, Audubon, GEO, Terre Sauvage, Stern, Der Spiegel, and the New York Times. In 1997 National Geographic magazine published Klum’s photos for the first time and he became the first Swede to have his work on the magazine’s cover. One of its youngest ever contributors, he has had his photos in a number of National Geographic articles and on eight covers.

Over the years, Klum has received numerous awards and grants for his work. In 2008 the World Economic Forum nominated him a Young Global Leader. And His Majesty the King of Sweden granted Klum a medal of the eighth grade with a blue ribbon for his important contributions as a nature photographer.

WHAT IS FOTOWEEK DC?


In 2008, FotoWeekDC began with one core program: a weeklong celebration of the power of photography. Founder Theo Adamstein, with a committed, passionate board and a small group of friends and local photographers raised seed money and launched FotoWeek’s initial photography festival in November 2008. Now officially FotoDC, the organization has evolved from a city-centric photography festival to a multi-season tribute to photography in all its forms.

Check out this year’s entire festival program at FOTOWEEKDC’s HOMEPAGE.
