Brighton Photo Biennial is the UK’s leading festival of photography offering an ambitious celebration of international photographic practice.

The Biennial is committed to stimulating debate on photography in all its forms: new and historic, digital and analogue, still and moving. It presents the work of international artists, from a range of cultural backgrounds, commissioning new work, premiering recent work and exhibiting historical work in new contexts.

The Biennial includes exhibitions, participatory programmes, publications, conferences, talks, portfolio reviews and outdoor events. An extensive education programme develops local audiences through which the Biennial aims to reach the widest possible audiences and creates exciting opportunities for participation and engagement.
