Frame Freely, 7 September 2018 - 16 October 2018

First held in October 2006, the Daegu Photo Biennale, the largest photography event in South Korea, has been held on a total of six occasions as of 2016. The event, which has grown into one of South Korea’s three largest biennales, has taken root in Daegu a city with a rich culture of photography. Today, Daegu is still the city in South Korea with the highest number of university photography departments, making it the photography capital of South Korea.

Referring to the frame of a photograph, the term “frame” also represents the fixed ideals, notions, values, and norms of a society. The Daegu Photo Biennale aims not to destroy the frame but to freely define its boundaries and aspire to achieve photographic beauty within it. The goal of the Daegu Photo Biennale is to highlight all the qualities of the everchanging photography of our time.
