Welcome to the Finding Emerson Photo Festival 2021
We're looking forward to inviting all of you! ... To inspiring audiences and developing a confidence in creativity around the medium of photography. This is our first year and we're immensely excited about taking this event towards being an annual fixture.
Devised by Utter Nonsense and originalprojects; the Festival’s home is Great Yarmouth, the town immortalised by the pioneering photography of Peter Henry Emerson.
The launch day on Saturday 5th June will include exhibitions, artist talks, break out sessions, art installations, Journal launch and highlight the workshop programmes and open art competition taking place throughout the rest of the year. We have an excellent line-up of speakers, photographers, gallerists and academics. See the What’s On page for full details.
Whatever your background, the festival will bring a new understanding to photography, and bring to life the extraordinary legacy to one of Britain's greatest photographers, Peter Henry Emerson. Come and join us on Saturday 5th June 2021.
