Welcome to Photomonth 2015


Photomonth celebrates photography in galleries and venues across East London. The festival aims to demonstrate the diversity of contemporary photography and reach the widest possible audience. Since 2001 photomonth has become one of the largest and most inclusive festivals in the UK and this year there are well over 100 exhibitions and events involving more than 500 artists.


In 2015 photomonth includes the photobook weekend and the photoblock at the Old Truman Brewery, the photo-open and portfolio review at the Rich Mix, and a wide-ranging programme of exhibitions, events, artists talks, seminars, workshops & courses providing opportunities for everyone to engage in and enjoy photography.


Photomonth opens at theprintspace with Harrodsburg, a remarkable body of work by Glaswegian photographer Dougie Wallace who continues to push the boundaries of the social documentary genre. Harrodsburg tells a story of glut, greed and the widening wealth gap playing out on the streets of a city that is going through a period of unprecedented social change.
