The annual exhibition of the PORTRAITS – Hellerau Photography Award with works from all 29 finalists is currently taking place in the Technical Collections Dresden – a museum in the center of the Saxon state capital, which also houses the collection of the municipal Museum of Photography.
The exhibition runs through the entire house: starting in the large temporary exhibition room, through the former offices of Heinrich-Ernemann-AG and the historic foyer into the permanent exhibitions on different floors of the house. We are looking forward to your visit!
