[P]hotomonth is back and bubbling over with brilliant images celebrating photography in galleries and venues across East London. Since 2001 the festival has established itself to become widely recognised as a major international event – bringing innovation and inspiration through the Open Call for exhibitions and encouraging participation in the wide variety of events on offer.
This year Imagining the East End is a strong theme flowing through the festival with artists who are radically changing our ways of seeing and exhibitions revolutionising our perception of an area whose influence reaches far beyond its actuality.
Photomonth opens at the Cass Gallery with a specially curated show ARCHIVE: Imagining the East End inspired by the East End Archive, a collection of contemporary and historical work. The exhibition showcases a diverse range of photographers whose work relates to the East End of London and includes other local historical archives.
During October and November there will be a huge range of exhibitions and events produced by over 300 photographers whose energy and enthusiasm make photomonth east london a continuously enjoyable experience for everyone.
