Hereford Photography Festival is the UK’s longest running photography festival featuring over 75 artists and documentary photographers from across the globe in 40 exhibitions. The festival will see over 200 works feature in exhibition halls, churches, museums, art galleries and in public spaces over a one month period.
Now entering its 21st year, this year’s festival highlights include an exhibition at Hereford Museum and Art Gallery, co-curated by Simon Bainbridge, editor of the British Journal of Photography. The exhibition, entitled Time & Motion studies: New documentary photography beyond the decisive moment features work from six leading artists; Donald Weber, George Georgio, Manuel Vasquez, Robbie Cooper, Tim Hetherington and Vanessa Winship who demonstrate the decision process between seeing a potential photo and making the conscious decision to take it.
This year’s festival also sees the return of the highly popular open submission exhibition, Open Here, the launch of Transit, a body of work by 8 Polish artists curated by Krakow Photomonth for HPF which is broken down into a number of segments exploring transit populations within Eastern European communities and a selection of work by parkour photographer, Andy Day, who will show his latest work at the Watershead Gallery.
Hereford Photography Festival runs until Saturday 26 November at venues across Hereford. To find out more details about the festival please visit their website.
