Co-founded by members of creative platforms Hard Workers Club, Smalltime Projects and The Good Copy in Melbourne circa 2012, the Independent Photography Festival describes itself as an ‘annual multi-city celebration of the application and practice of photography’. Keeping things local for 2016’s edition, this year the showcase returns to London with an impressive line-up of exhibitions and events taking place across the capital.
Kicking off at the recently renovated House of Vans, today marks the public opening of the IPF Photo Prize, an exhibition (and competition!) featuring the likes of young talents Emilia Cocking, Lucy Yang and many more, on display in Waterloo until 27th May. Coupled with the static display, IPF are collaborating with Studio K to run print-a-tee workshops for the next three weekends (6th, 13th and 20th May), in which fans can screen print images by Kingston University students (Illustration and Animation BA respectively) on plain tees.
