Photo Fringe returns online and in-venue

Our ninth biennial photography festival, this year titled TAKE/MAKE, is a call to action, inviting artists and audiences to take photos and to make a difference; to make art and communicate our place in the world through it; to use photography to make change; to develop new ways of seeing together. The event allows all photographic artists an open platform to exhibit.

Operating within up-to-date social distancing guidelines, over 20 self-curated exhibitions, together with presentations of work selected from open call, will show in galleries, pop-up venues and outdoor installations in Brighton & Hove and along the coast in Worthing.

On our festival website over 150 photographers and collectives have created digital exhibitions responding to our TAKE/MAKE theme. Participation has proved popular with local and international photographers alike and the festival line-up includes practitioners from all career stages, from recent graduates to established talents.

Subjects range from protest and the environment, to reclaiming lost histories and the intimacy of conversations over tea. The impact of Covid19 is a common thread provoking diverse creative approaches. Supporting events run throughout the month online with guided tours, artist talks, participation projects and performances.

Claire Wearn, Festival Director says:

Photo Fringe is open to all and everyone’s invited. Audiences have come to expect the unexpected of our festival and we’re known for enabling extraordinary exhibitions in unusual spaces. This year, we’ve embraced the challenge of our “new normal” by encouraging artists and audiences to experiment with us. We’ve welcomed more exhibitors than ever before and we ask everyone to think about how photography can make a difference

The festival website will launch at photofringe.org 10am Saturday 3 October

Join us 6pm on Zoom for our launch party
