The European Month of Photography is Germany’s largest biennial festival of photographic images. This year is EMOPs 10th edition and the theme is ‘Touch’. 100 exhibitions will be on view throughout the month, offering visitors an opportunity to explore the many ways in which photography can present itself. There will be talks, panel discussions, book presentations and more.

All of them dealing with the desire and longing for connection and physical contact.
