PhotoHastings 2022

Taking place throughout October and into November, since 2010.

This year in addition to our regular (and sometimes irregular) exhibiting spaces, we decided to take three weeks at Electro Studios Project Space (ESPS), in St Leonards on Sea, creating a mini ‘hub’ for our festival. This allows us to present five shows, talks, workshops and events, all in the same venue. We are very much looking forward to working with the ESPS team and to seeing you there. This is in addition to other exhibtions and events organised by members.

A popular feature of the annual festival is Photology, a series of photography talks initiated and organised by Alexander Brattell presenting invited artists, curators and writers. Past talks have featured, Simon Norfolk, Mark Power, Sean O’Hagan, Anthony Penrose, John Stezaker, Peter Kennard, Prof. Val Williams, Simon Baker and Brian Griffin, amongst others.This year Phology have organised five speakers to share their stories and working practise with us.

We have enjoyed the opportunity this year of working with Solaris Print to facilitate an Open Call to PH members, resulting in a solo show for the winner in their Gallery Space. The open winner is Neale Willis and he will be showing at SOlaris from 15 October. New for 2022 is the launch of our online curated PhotoHastings Instagram Gallery, with which we hope to bring bodies of our members’ work, and that of occaisonal guests, to our followers attention and enjoyment.
