Since the beginning of the 21st century, over half the world’s population now dwell in cities. That means 3.3 billion people live on only 3% of the earth’s surface. What are the consequences of this shift? Can the countryside survive the economic, demographic, cultural and ecological ravages of this abandonment? Is a decent, humane life possible in the modern megalopolis that is bursting at its seams?

These are the questions that Noorderlicht is placing at the heart of its photo festivals for the coming two years.
