photomonth 09 in the UK
I don't usually write about international festivals, but I received an email from Shoot Experience, an (in their words) "experiential photography company" who wrote to let me know that they're co-producing photomonth, which is the UK's largest photography festival. It seems like a great venue for those in England to attend--it runs until the end of the month, and includes over 150 exhibitions and events, more than 85 galleries and spaces and over 500 photographers. Highlights include a book signing by Martin Parr tomorrow night from 6-8pm at Rocket Gallery, and a lecture by Mark Neville at White Chapel Gallery this Thursday at 7:00pm. For all of the events visit photomonth's website here.
