As you may know by now there have been a lot of photography exhibitions happening in Brighton as a result of the Festival and Fringe festival. One of our tutors, and ace photographer LomoKev has an exhibition of his great Brighton Swim Club documentary images up at the Eagle pub. A lot of snappers in Brighton have focussed on the legendary swimming club, but there is something a lot more ‘real’ and rewarding about kevs images- as not only is he a member of the group and has been for many years, but shoots both from sea and shore, and they provide an intimate look into this small group of friends and swimming fanatics.
he has a lot of work in this show, and the prints look fantastic, its 100yards walk from our studio, so we urge you to go and check it out as soon as you can. LomoKev
A large amount of the Brighton Flickr crew have some prints in a group photography show at the Marlborough Theatre, its a really varied show with a wide range of subject matters from a swathe of talented photographers, some new names and some old favourites. Check it while you can.
More Brighton Flickr people also have an open house at 88 Lincoln Street, Hanover, Brighton:
“Killing Time & Other Things… Returning for a second year, photographers Lauren Chauvin and Andy Deighton explore a brand new theme with a mixture of raw portraiture, colourful abstracts and rich landscapes.”
Theres probably a lot more great selection of work out there that we havent even begun to catch up with yet, but finally we’d like to draw your attention to some of the brilliant work thats actually being made as a result of the festival being in town, which this year is curated by Anish Kapoor, whose work plays a part in this brilliant image below, by Rob Orchard, and is a collaboration with Big Bambooly. We think this shot just shows the sheer breadth of talent in this city and we hope you love it as much as we do, if you click on Robs name above it will take you to a much bigger and better version. Its a stunning piece of work.
If you have any more top festival tips, big shows, open houses etc, or great photo opportunities then drop us a line and we will let everyone know.
