Street Level Open 2019
12th September - 24th November
‘…there is no such thing as a singular photography at all, only discontinuous, myriad photographies…’ - Geoffrey Batchen
The Street Level Open comes into existence once again to mark the organisation’s 30th Year of championing photography. Featuring the work of over 60 artists the exhibition’s aim is clear - to create a lively exhibition embracing the range of formats and methods of photographic image-making currently being practiced here. Be it post-photography or proto-analogue we are interested in work that embodies the essence of photography as well as that which sits at its verge. Photography as gesture, as evidence, as archive, as a window into another places or a reflection of your inner self, photography is in and around us…
This is the 8th edition of the Street Level Open and the works on show were selected from open submission. Submission guidelines can be found here.
