Founded in 2001 to showcase the diversity of contemporary photography to the widest possible audience, Photomonth returns in October with another eclectic selection of exhibitions, talks and workshops across East London.
As ever Photomonth 2014 aims to give emerging artists a prominent platform alongside more established, internationally renowned photographers and to present work in unusual and exciting spaces. The festival’s Open Call for exhibitions is designed to encourage more widespread participation and foster a truly innovative programme of events.
This year’s theme is Imagining the East End, which will be evident throughout the festival’s many and varied exhibitions and provides the subject for the festival’s opening show at the Cass Gallery, which derives inspiration from the East End Archive and seeks to explore the East End as both a geographical area and a conceptual space.
Among the other prominent spaces participating in Photomonth is the Barbican, which hosts ‘Constructing Worlds: Photography and Architecture in the Modern Age’ and the Whitechapel Gallery where Heather McDonugh and Rod Morris will host a workshop on street photography.
