Photomonth East London is an international photography festival. Radical London is a major theme flowing through Photomonth 2012 with talks at Bishopsgate Institute and exhibitions in Shoreditch and Spitalfields. There are also more than 150 exhibitions in galleries and venues that demonstrate the depth and diversity of contemporary photography. Major events include the Photofair in Spitalfields Traders Market, the Photo-Open at the Rich Mix, the Portfolio Review at the V&A Museum of Childhood and the Photomonth Lecture at the Whitechapel Gallery. In addition a programme of talks, walks and workshops provides opportunities for everyone to engage with photography.
The afternoon will consist of a potluck-style lunch - the attendees are invited to bring home made dishes - followed by an eclectic programme of slideshows, bringing together members of the photography, art and media communities for a day of eating, drinking and visual storytelling.
This extra-ordinary edition, directed by Maria Teresa Salvati, will present a selection of photo-stories from the past 5 years selected and curated by Louise Clements Artistic Director of QUAD and FORMAT International Photography Festival, and Rebecca McClelland, Photography Director at NewStatesman, Associate Lecturer Photo UCA & Creative Director at Ian Parry Scholarship.
What makes this an extra-ordinary event is the fact that Slideluck landed for the very first time in London, in 2007, so this is our 5th birthday. We have excited to bring to Brighton a preview of a retrospective of the best photography slideshows and multimedia stories presented in the past five years. The themes explored in the past years, include: 'Energy', 'Multiculturalism' and 'Gender & Identity'. The names that Slideluck has brought to the Capital range from emerging and established photographers of the likes of: Spencer Tunick, Alex Webb, Sebastián Liste, Anastasia Taylor-Lind, Alvaro Laiz and many others.
