Exhibition: International Photography Exhibition 162

Event info

The RPS International Photography Exhibition 162 featuring work from 43 international photographers tours the UK throughout 2020 and into 2021. 

 

The exhibition will be on display at Oriel Gallery Theatr Clwyd, North Wales from 28 November 2020 to 16 January 2021. Please check venue website for opening times

 

Selected from a worldwide open call and curated by some of the most influential people in photography today, this edition includes stark landscapes made during periods of extended solitude, alongside images created using pinhole cameras (made from apples) which celebrate community orchards. Spirituality, family, identity, and inclusion are some of the powerful narratives explored this year.

 

The selection panel included Shannon Ghannam (Global Education Director at Magnum Photos), Skinder Hundal MBE (CEO/Director of New Art Exchange), Yan Wang Preston (Photographic Artist and lecturer at the University of Huddersfield) and Cian Oba-Smith (Editorial and Commercial Photographer), who were joined by RPS Director of Education Dr Michael Pritchard. They selected an exhibition enthused with storytelling, reflecting the concerns of the modern world.

 

The IPE is kindly supported by theprintspace.

International Photography Exhibition

The International Photography Exhibition (IPE) is an annual international open-call to photographers and image-makers of all ages. Each year, a touring photographic show is curated by some of the most influential people in photography today.

 

Steeped in history, the IPE has been held almost every year since 1854, the year after The RPS was founded and is the longest running exhibition of its kind in the world. In the early years, the exhibition included work from some of the world's most eminent photographers including Julia Margaret Cameron, Roger Fenton, Edward Steichen and Paul Strand.
