Photomonth 2008 now on line

You can now find out more about Photomonth 2008, the East London Photography festival, from the web site which is finally on line. This has now grown into the country’s largest photography festival, with over 100 events included.

One of them is of course English Carnival, on show* at the Shoreditch Gallery at the Juggler in Hoxton Market until 30 Oct – and this is positively the last time I’ll mention that you are all welcome to the opening tomorrow, Thursday 2 Oct, 6.30-8.30!  Some people in the past have found the Juggler hard to find (go up Pitfield St  from Old St, take the first on the right a few yards up, then Hoxton Market is another 50 yards or so on your left – or use put N1 6HG into Streetmap – how hard is that?)

It’s a shame that this is also the date of the Photomonth launch event – and several other openings I’ve had invitations too. Sometimes openings are too much like London buses.

Hayling Island Carnival, 2008. Peter Marshall

Unfortunate too that our later “English Carnival”  show at the Barbican Library was arranged too late to be in the Photomonth programme, although it’s in the right area during the right time, from 3-29 Dec, 2008. More about that later – I’ll probably show a different group of work from the pictures at the Juggler.

*PS – Thanks to BJP

I’m delighted to find the show is listed today by the British Journal of Photography in their ‘On Show’ feature in print and on-line at number 2 in their pick of “Five to visit…”
