Selected from a worldwide open call and curated by some of the most influential people in photography today, this edition includes stark landscapes made during periods of extended solitude, alongside images created using pinhole cameras (made from apples) which celebrate community orchards. Spirituality, family, identity, and inclusion are some of the powerful narratives explored this year.
The selection panel included Shannon Ghannam (Global Education Director at Magnum Photos), Skinder Hundal MBE (CEO/Director of New Art Exchange), Yan Wang Preston (Photographic Artist and lecturer at the University of Huddersfield) and Cian Oba-Smith (Editorial and Commercial Photographer), who were joined by RPS Director of Education Dr Michael Pritchard. They selected an exhibition enthused with storytelling, reflecting the concerns of the modern world.
A series of photography talks and workshops will be programmed during February and March. The exhibition will tour to London, Yorkshire and Wales throughout 2020 and into 2021.
The IPE is kindly supported by theprintspace.
