This year, the heart of Unseen Photo Festival lies in the Spaarndammerbuurt. Not only is this neighbourhood located next to the Westergasfabriek-area, where Unseen Photo Fair takes place, it’s also one of the most beautiful, old districts of Europe, where the factory workers of Amsterdam used to live. Now, the neighbourhood is known for its world famous Amsterdam School architecture, which celebrates its 100th anniversary in 2016.
