Bristol Photo Festival
May 18th 2021 - October 9th 2021
Bristol Photo Festival is a new and innovative festival that celebrates the power and diversity of photography. We commission and produce national, international solo and group exhibitions in a biannual festival across the city of Bristol. We also run an ongoing national and international programme of talks, events, workshops and training through a partnership model of collaboration.
The festival offers innovative commissions for photographers, provides platforms for students & emerging photographers and produces an extensive outreach & engagement programme across Bristol with schools, community groups, third level educational institutions, charities and libraries. The festival also partners with major international photography festivals to bring new work to international audiences.
As part of the Festival, a number of artists including QEST Scholar Jessa Fairbrother have been invited to collaborate with Bristol Museum and Art Gallery. Jessa’s hand-worked and embroidered photographs are being displayed amongst the Museum’s Pre-Raphaelite paintings and modern French art, including this hand embroidered work from her series ‘Conversations with my mother’.
