EYE Photography Festival 2018

The EYE Photography Festival in Aberystwyth, West Wales, for its fourth year with another fantastic programme of speakers, exhibitions, activities and networking.

Friday 5th – Sunday 7th October 2018

Magnum Photographer David Hurn has been quoted that this is “the best photography festival in the UK”.

As with previous Festivals, 2018 has a schedule of speakers, exhibitions, workshops and activities over the weekend of 5-7 October 2018. With everything in a single venue, the Aberystwyth Arts Centre.

Highlights for me will be Photojournalists Kate Holt and Danilo Balducci; Documentary Art Photographer Helen Marshall; Documentary Art Photographer José Sarmento Matos, and finally Street Portrait Photographer Niall McDiarmid (with whom I’ve had the pleasure of meeting and been taught by at The Martin Parr Foundation earlier this year)

In 2017 The EYE International Photography Festival formed a new partnership with the Oriel Colwyn gallery in Colwyn Bay by launching The Northern EYE International Photography Festival. Look out for information on the next Northern EYE Festival in 2019 www.northerneyefestival.co.uk
