This year, 10 photographers present their series for the Photo Creator of the Year 2021 award.
The documentary screened this year is The Light Within A Hundred Square Feet, which tells the story of Chicago’s last film developer.
In addition to this, KLPF collaborates with foreign photography festivals and photo exhibitions to enable two-way exchange.
