PHOTOMONTH CELEBRATES 10 YEARS
photomonth is a celebration of photography. In 2010 there are over 200 exhibitions and events in East London and beyond. To mark our 10th anniversary we have created a series of special projects – the new photolounge at the Old Truman Brewery, images along the East London Line from Dalston to Shoreditch, eatyourartout with exhibitions in a wide range of restaurants, bars & cafes, photomonthlive.com for your mobile and the photomonth assignment for budding photojournalists. We are also partnering the Brighton Photo Fringe and collaborating with Rhubarb-Rhubarb from Birmingham.
Major exhibitions this year include Philip Jones Griffiths (1936-2008) and Elliott Erwitt at Magnum Print Room, Ted Polhemus at The Book Club, Edmund Clark at Flowers East, James Barnor at Rivington Place, Noemi Goudal at Hotshoe Gallery, John Ferguson at Open the Gate, Martin Usborne at theprintspace and Walid Raad at the Whitechapel. And there are many exciting emerging artists exhibiting in original venues from The Luxe restaurant to the Bordello lingerie shop.
