The Independent Photography Festival returns to London.

Christopher Nunn

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.

Elsewhere across town, Calvert 22 Space are hosting a pop-up show and Q&A with Christopher Nunn (mark 10th May in your diaries), exploring work from his recent book Holy Water, an extract from a Ukraine based project, while June Canedo’s Black Bike Week arrives at Printspace on the 11th, exhibiting pieces shot during South Carolina’s 2015 Black Bike Week motorcycle rally.

Further events – think book signings and film screenings – are happening throughout the month, while contributor numbers top 300; if you’ve even the slightest interest in people with strong camera skills we’d highly recommend you make the time to hit it up. Make your selections here.
