AboutBrighton Photo Biennial, the UK's largest, international photography festival, returns for its sixth edition in 2014 and will take place across venues and public spaces in Brighton & Hove and beyond, from 4 October 2 November 2014.
This year's Biennial has no single curator.
Communities, Collectives & Collaboration will present a series of remarkable collaborations, featuring over 45 photographers, artists, collectives and partners. All are bound together by a common approach: projects produced
through innovative, new and unexpected partnerships between individuals, practitioners and organisations from different fields, together with previously unseen perspectives on photography.
From collusion and intrusion in paparazzi photography, to the sinking of a boat to create an artificial reef; diverse explorations of national and local photographic archives to questions of custodianship; ambitious public participatory projects, to photographers collaborating with environmentalists, scientists, young people, online communities and each other, the 2014 edition will see a focus on photo-collectives, as well as showcasing the results of practitioners invited to work collaboratively for the first time.
