About us

ĦOLMA’s ambition is to form long-standing connections between international photographers from the LGBTQIA+ community, to support one another both personally and professionally. ĦOLMA is an organisation dedicated to creating opportunities in photography for traditionally marginalized communities, through means of education, exhibition and community building in the professional sector.
