NEWCASTLE PHOTOGRAPHY FESTIVAL 2016
The inaugural Newcastle Photography Festival in October 2014 was a celebration of photography inspired by Joseph Swan and his adventures with carbon, collodion and light.
Swan and other early photographic pioneers continue to inspire us and inevitably we find ourselves planning our second Newcastle Photography Festival which will run for a week from Monday 17th October through to Sunday 23rd October 2016 here in Newcastle upon Tyne.
We are busy putting together a programme of events and are looking for people and businesses to collaborate with. Are you a business looking to sponsor an event? Are you a photographic enthusiast willing to join our merry band of volunteers? Please get in touch.
UPDATE FOR AUGUST
The Gallery space at The New Bridge Project is now becoming our hub. We plan to hold demonstrations and talks in the gallery during the week of the Festival.
We have Chris Madge demonstrating Gum Bichromate and talking about this and other alternative processes.
Keith Moss is very kindly coming from North Yorkshire to give a presentation on street photography and to take people out onto the streets of Newcastle to share his skills.Check out Keiths` website at http://www.keithmossphotography.co.uk/
We have moved the Magic Lantern show from Friday to Saturday to use the amazing Lecture theatre at The North of England Institute of Mining and Electrical Engineers,Neville Hall near Newcastle Central Station.
We have hired a gallery for the Festival week at The New Bridge Project based at Norham House 12, New Bridge Street West Newcastle NE1 8AW
