Who we are

The Fotofestival Lenzburg is an up-and-coming festival of photography that takes place biannually in the history-rich town of Lenzburg, in the heart of Switzerland. For one month from the end of May, it brings together participating photography experts and an interested public.  The Fotofestival Lenzburg transforms its host town into an exhibition space dedicated exclusively to photography, presenting the medium in a wide variety of venues.

With curated group and solo exhibitions, guided tours, workshops, portfolio discussions, lectures, and accompanying events, the festival presents various photographic positions to be explored. It also offers numerous opportunities to meet and exchange with a community of enthusiasts in an open yet intimate setting. Lenzburg’s proximity to the art metropolises of Zurich and Basel attracts regional and international visitors to the festival.

The Fotofestival Lenzburg is a project of the Society for Photography of Lenzburg, founded in 2017.
