Brighton Photo Fringe supports early career photographers and lens-based artists, enabling all kinds of people to experiment with photography. Find out more about the festival and its theme – Photography Changes Everything – @photofringe #BPF18
2 – 28 October: 10.00 – 17.00 (closed Mondays) // Join us for the opening event on Thursday 4th October 19.00 – 21.00
Jack Latham is a graduate of the renowned documentary photography degree at Newport University. His work is often presented in a mixture of large format photography and film-making and has been exhibited and published internationally.
For BPF18, Latham takes inspiration from Oscar Wilde’s play The importance of Being Earnest. The play’s themes of dishonesty,
hypocrisy, ‘catfishing’ and morality are becoming ever more relevant in a digital age, and his series of images explore how a
new generation have to navigate and reconcile separate identities.
As part of the residency you are invited to bring in your portfolio for feedback from a group of professionals, including Jack Latham, in a special speed-dating session. This is a fantastic opportunity to get that all-important professional feedback on your work. Places will be limited so to be sure of your spot please register with firstname.lastname@example.org
25th October 17.00 – 19.00 // FREE

This will be exhibited in the Studio Gallery from 18th – 28th October with a preview on 18th October after the Artists Talk.
