Photo Gallery: Photo North Festival, Harrogate
Some of the world’s top photographers will come to the North from November 9-11 to present their works through an exciting range of interactive events in the first international festival of its kind, Photo North.
Brought together in a single venue in the spa town of Harrogate, a back-drop of street food vendors, live music and licensed bars will play host to exhibitions, book zine stalls, photo walks, portrait salons, workshops, portfolio reviews, screenings and live chats, all championing photography and open to the public for the three-day festival. The curators of Photo North, Peter Dench and Sharon Price, have secured participation from iconic names including Jane Hilton, Tom Oldham, Tom Stoddart, Paula Bronstein, Jenny Matthews, Anastasia Taylor Lind and Dean Belcher.
To commemorate 100 years since the end of World War One, the festival will show Tom Stoddart’s Shadows of War, a stunning reportage of the battlefields and war memorials in Belgium and France. Paula Bronstein and Poulomi Basu will be part of the Women & Conflict Exhibition which marks the centenary on November 11. Photo North is also displaying images from the Imperial War Museum taken by female photographers on the front line. Peter Dench and Sharon Price are founders of The Curators and the former film and photography gallery White Cloth Gallery.

Thought for the Day: I bought a ceiling fan the other day. Complete waste of money. He just stands there applauding and saying “Ooh, I love how smooth it is.”
