    Kranj Foto Fest is a new photo festival in Kranj, Slovenia, addressing the challenging topic of isolation/freedom. From the festival website:

    Exploring critical issues of our era, the Kranj Foto Fest attempts to bring together a range of different perspectives from emerging and established photographers and visual artists from all over the world.

    The city of photography pioneers: it was exactly here, in this alpine scenery, that in 1842, Janez Puhar – a priest, poet, scientist and the first Slovenian photographer – created a unique process of photography on glass. The hyalotype (or puharotype in his honor) generated a positive image with a short exposure of only 15 seconds, allowing Janez Puhar to make portraits and reproductions. Because of this invention, Kranj conquered a spot on the world map of the very beginnings of photography buildup.

    Having this remarkable historical context as a backdrop, the Kranj Foto Fest has been created to celebrate photography and its significance. The program, curated by a team of experts, includes exhibitions, talks, workshops, masterclasses, projections and portfolio reviews taking place in the scenic old town in the summer.

    The typography uses Wesna, designed by Alja Herlah and Krista Likar (Type Salon), for the visual identity. A circle-shaped uppercase O was designed for this project; the logo also uses Wesna’s alternative form for J.
