Brighton Photo Fringe business: MiniClick talk, Tim Andrews Over the Hill Exhibition and The Shot I Never Forgot

The Brighton Biannual and companion Photo Fringe festival are now in full swing. I’ve not got any stand alone shows in this years festival but I have images in two group shows and I am speaking at a MiniClick event. Combined the Biannual and Photo Fringe is a massive photography festival and would be well worth a trip to Brighton from London and further afield. If you are from London and this post does not tempt you down I recommend you go to ‘Make Life Worth Living‘ and ‘Open for Business‘ at the Media Space at the London Science Museum.

Nick Hedges’ ‘Make Life Worth Living’ exhibition at the Science Museum’s Media Space

Nick Hedges was commissioned by the housing charity Shelter to document the harsh living conditions that people in poverty where forced to live in from 1968 – 1972. The work was used to help Shelter better campaign for those in poverty. To protect the anonymity of the people depicted the images have been used in a very limited way up and till now, this is the first public showing of the work since it was created over forty years ago.

Travel Photographer of the Year 2013 exhibition at the Royal Geographical Society

I had a few hours spare in London when I was up for PhotoForum this week so I checked out the Travel Photographer of the Year 2013 exhibition at the Royal Geographical Society. It’s only on for another week so next Sunday (18th of August) will be your last chance to see it. Most of the exhibition is outside and there is a little coffee shop in the Geographical Society courtyard so you can enjoy a beverage while you view the work in out fine-ish summer weather.

Phoot Camp coming to Brighton with an exhibition and talk

As part of the Brighton Photo Fringe Festival MiniClick is bringing a slice of Phoot Camp to Brighton in the form of an exhibition and talk. Phoot Camp is an invite-only photography retreat where photographers get together for a few days and create new work. It’s been held in San Francisco, LA, Marfa (Texas) and upstate New York. I have been lucky enough to attend three of the four camps. I have met some amazingly creative people at Phoot so I am really proud to bring a little slice of the camp to Brighton for the Photo Fringe.
