This year Hereford Photography Festival’s OPEN HERE open submission received 200 applicants of which 23 were selected for the show. This year’s winner is Jason Larkin. However, visitors to the show can vote for their favourite photographer. The photographer with the most votes will receive £200 at the end of the show and the Public’s Prize.
A photo stroll around the exhibition at The Courtyard Centre for the Arts on the press trip, see earlier post.
I am interested in how the work has been exhibited as well as the Own Art scheme and the pricing of different works. As you can see, some works fall under the Own Art scheme and others don’t. As I understand, there is a cap – £1000 perhaps? – on the price of works falling under this scheme, something else to look into. Also, note the price variations related to the different types of prints for sale with C type prints priced higher.
The following photos are all shot on my iPhone again, so excuse the quality but they should give a flavour of the works in the show which range from work based squarely on scientific material themed around cancer by Noh Sang Ik, a surgical oncologist and photographer in South Korea, to works which could be described as emotive documentary.
