Hereford Photo Festival 2010 celebrates twenty years and Jason Larkin wins OPEN HERE – Press preview photo stroll

HEREFORD PHOTO FESTIVAL 2010
This is the year that Hereford Photo Festival celebrates its twentieth anniversary which makes it, I believe, the longest running annual photography festival in the UK.

Hotshoe editor Melissa Dewitt was on the selection panel with Paul Seawright, Stuart Whipps, artistic director Caitlin Griffiths and Nina Gustavsson for the the OPEN HERE submissions where the work of 23 photographers was selected from over 200 applicants. The winner of OPEN HERE is Jason Larkin with his project, Past Perfect Museum II. He wins a £2000 commission to make new work for the festival next year. More of this tomorrow when I post some images from the OPEN show with a couple of audio recordings from photographer Jackie Nickerson‘s talk and co-curator/photographer Paul Seawright.

For today, here’s a preview of some of the work on show shot on my iPhone.
