Brighton Photo Fringe
BPF14: 4 OCTOBER – 2 NOVEMBER
This year Brighton Photo Fringe brings you BPF14, the sixth edition of one of the largest and most inclusive photography festivals in the UK. An established month-long platform, Brighton Photo Fringe supports photographers to self-organise exhibitions across the city of Brighton & Hove and along the South East coast.
The BPF14 events programme will include over 80 exhibitions and events, including pop-up displays, panel discussions, workshops, talks, guided tours, participatory events and a book fair. Underpinning and supporting this eclectic selection of exhibitions permeating the city this October, Brighton Photo Fringe are working closely with partners Metro Imaging, London’s most trusted and reliable pro lab, and Miniclick to deliver a number of events.
In addition to the festival exhibitions we present three BPF14 Hubs this year:
- THE REGENCY TOWN HOUSE: OPEN14
- PHOENIX BRIGHTON: PARTICIPATION AND EVENTS HUB
- VANTAGE POINT: COLLECTIVES’ HUB
The Regency Town House: Peter Watkins
The Brighton Photo Fringe OPEN14 will be a solo exhibition by Peter Watkins, supported by our print partner Metro Imaging.
You can also see a projection of photographers which were shortlisted for the OPEN14.
A free panel discussion with Daniel C. Blight, the BPF Trainee Curators and Peter Watkins will be held at RTH on Sunday 5 October.
