The 21st annual Hereford Photography Festival opens on Friday, October 28 and runs until Saturday, November 26, and is delighted to announce that Simon Bainbridge, editor of The British Journal of Photography will co-curate the exhibition at Hereford Museum and Art Gallery this year.

“I was thrilled to be approached by Hereford Photography Festival who have such a great history of exhibiting international photographic work,” said Simon. “I’m excited to be working with them in this their 21st year, on an exhibition that will respond to the idea of movement, this year’s festival theme.”

HPF will again be presenting Open Here, the annual open submission exhibition at The Courtyard. Jason Larkin, Open Here 2010 winner, will be exhibiting his new work at Hereford Cathedral.

The festival will also present the first ever exhibition by British photographer and parkour practitioner Andy Day plus Ken Grant’s photographs documenting the move from the old market.
