Derby Photo Fringe

The inaugural Derby Photo Fringe launched on the 14th March alongside Format International Photography Festival 19: Forever//Now. Featuring exhibitions and events from FORM, Contrast, East Meets West and Tristan Poyser all based around Derby’s Eagle Market Hall.

I have founded Derby Photo Fringe and hope to establish it as an ongoing project that works with local communities to discuss, exhibit and commission photography.

Derby Photo Fringe 2019 is open Monday to Saturday, 9am – 5pm until Saturday 13th April.

FORM at Derby Fringe

Thrilled to announce that FORM have been awarded Arts Council funding to produce Derby Fringe, the inaugural Fringe to Format International Photography Festival. We will be working alongside East meets West and Derby University to host exhibitions and an accompanying public engagement programme of workshops and events.

FORM are looking to work with new artists to produce our Fringe exhibition and applications are now open to artists interested in furthering their practice through collaboration and group critique. We can offer a travel bursary, exhibition printing from Metro Imaging, review day with Camilla Brown and accommodation over the opening weekend of Format.

Applying is free and more information is available through our website, deadline Sunday 24th February 10am.

Autumn News


Shutter Hub published a behind the scenes feature on the Bathroom Darkroom Project on their blog in August. The article covers the project from start to finish, from the process of setting up the darkroom, opening it up to artists and exhibiting and publishing the work.


I was invited by Sian Bonnell to assist with her exhibition Beyond the Camera at Pingyao International Photography Festival in September. It was the fifth edition of her show at Pingyao, and I assisted with the curation and hanging of the work of 63 recent graduates from across UK BA and MA courses. My most recent work was also exhibited at the Festival.


We held our first exhibition as Form Collective in the Collectives Hub at Brighton Photo Fringe. The exhibition featured work produced since we started working together as a collective and was presented without authorship to acknowledge the influence we have had on each other’s practices. To coincide with the exhibition we also launched our first publication, consisting of eight risograph printed posters within a cover which can be taken apart and reassembled to re-contextualise the work.
