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 original projects; 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 included exhibitions, artist talks, break out sessions, art installations, and Journal launch, plus an excellent line-up of speakers, photographers, gallerists and academics. From July to December, the festival programme includes a series of school workshops and the Finding Emerson Open photographic competition. 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.
