Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
A new biennial photographic festival, aimed at promoting some of the world's top talent behind the lens, is coming to Northern Ireland, its first major photographic event. The importance of photography in Northern Ireland's visual culture and history is something that will be highlighted, while also embracing and showcasing the nations upcoming photographic talent both at home and abroad through seeking out new/emerging talent.
Organisers promise to "provide a forum and promote the growth of the current photographic infrastructure and practice throughout the country", as well as "supporting audience development across the arts and cultural sector in Belfast and Derry".
"Through a series of interactive events we hope to inspire the countries future photographers, artists and entrepreneurs, offering new, exciting, welcoming and sometimes challenging experiences to audiences through the festival's programme of events," festival organisers said.
The festival launches tonight at the Black Box in Belfast. Exhibitions will run from August 4-14, and details can be found here.
