Story

Through The Lens Festival Of Photograpghy is a three-day festival to be held in 2018. Our aim is to bring established photographers such as Martin Parr, Ian Berry, Mark Powers, Antony Penrose, Peter Dench amongst others to Hastings. To share their work and knowledge in the hope it will inspire other. Also to give an opportunity for emerging photographers to exhibit free along side more established photographers. We will be holding free workshops for children, to encouraging them to take up photography. With Hastings being one of the poorest parts of the UK, yet one of the most creative, we want with your help to promote the photographic talent that is in abundance here. Your donations are vital in kick starting this festival. Your money will help make this a biannual event, which will help generations to come.

    An excellent idea for people to be able to see the works of established photography giants alongside that of local artists.
