PhotoEast is a new photography festival for East Anglia. Organised with support from University Campus Suffolk (soon to be the University of Suffolk), the festival will be the place to be for photography enthusiasts over the month of exhibitions, talks, activities and many other events.

The main location for the festival will be the Ipswich Waterfront along with other spots along the East Suffolk Railway line. All of the PhotoEast events are free which we think is amazing! Book yourself onto the day of talks (Saturday 28th May) via this link.

The theme this year is ‘Of Time and Place’. The UCS Waterfront Gallery will be home to two reflecting exhibitions; Julian Germain with Face of the Century, and Zed Nelson's The Family.

What the Photograd team are most excited about are the talks at UCS on Saturday 28th May led by world-renowned photographers and industry professionals. UCS Photography course-leader Mark Edwards will be talking about his work that he makes in East Anglia, and George Georgiou will also talk about his work made in both London and Ipswich itself which was commissioned by PhotoEast; this work will also be on display during the festival.

 
 

Throughout the day of talks in Ipswich we will be working on making some blog content based around our visit and filling our Instagram page with related images. Be sure to follow us on Twitter and Instagram to find out what we're up to.

A big congratulations to the team behind PhotoEast, we can't wait to see it all take place!
