Metro Imaging x Brighton Photo Fringe 2018
Continuing its long-standing partnership and support of Brighton Photo Fringe, Metro Imaging is delighted to be the official print sponsor again for this year’s citywide celebration of photography, delivering the highest quality exhibitions in an innovative and exciting way. It really is an honour to be the official partner of an organisation that supports emerging photographers and lens-based artists, showcasing new talent and allowing all kinds of people to enjoy and experiment with photography.
The festival takes place throughout the month of October, and its 8th edition takes inspiration from Marvin Heiferman’s 2012 book and project for the Smithsonian Photography Initiative: click! photography changes everything. BPF18 explores how photography influences how we see and understand the world around us, hence by showcasing a vast range of photography the organisation aims to engage the community in debate about how we might harness photography to create a better world.
As main partners of Brighton Photo Fringe, every two years Metro awards BPF £10,000 credit to produce a series of exhibitions and all signage for the event. This includes the Open Solo Exhibition at ONCA with an installation by Sarah Howe; OPEN18 Young Photographers; and the Danny Wilson Memorial Award, with a premier portfolio prize with folio review and judging panel support.
Key Festival Events include:
29th September – Launch Events from 5pm.
30th September – Talk by Sarah Howe, OPEN18 Winner.
20th – 21st October – Photo Publishers Market.
27th October – Panel Discussion and International Festival Showcase, ACCA Various dates – Talks, Workshops, Guided Tours.
