About Photo Fringe

Developing new ways of seeing together

We invite everyone to work with us to create a fairer, safer, greener, anti-racist world together through photography.

Photo Fringe is a volunteer-led, collaborative platform providing essential professional development opportunities and peer-support for lens-based artists.

Our year-round programme fosters ambition, innovation and self-reliance in artists; nurtures confidence and creativity in participants; and inspires audiences with extraordinary images in unexpected places.

Since 2003, Photo Fringe has forged an international reputation for curating participation, developing pathways for people from all backgrounds to take part and enjoy photography.

Renowned for promoting outstanding new talent, Photo Fringe connects this nascent talent to new audiences, working with artist-led initiatives and festivals around the country.

Every two years Photo Fringe delivers an inclusive festival and everyone is invited.

The festival has a DIY ethos and exhibitors contribute fees so that collectively we can produce a high-quality, inclusive and ground-breaking event. Photo Fringe is a registered charity. The voluntary Board raises project funding and generates income from sales and donations. If you have the means, please support us to keep fees affordable and our opportunities and events free.
