At Edward Street you’ll find the European Premiere of The Dandy Lion Project. Exploring global expressions of the Black Dandy phenomenon against the backdrop of contemporary life, the exhibition presents more than 150 images from over thirty photographers and filmmakers and is curated from an international open call by US curator, Shantrelle P. Lewis.
Also at Edward Street British photographer Nigel Shafran create a ‘cabinet of curiosities’ combining unexpected images and objects that provide an alternative and visually-rich view into notions of beauty as circulated by the fashion photography industry. A digital display of The 2016 LensCulture Street Photography Awards presents the top 100 entries, finalists and winners. Nearby at Dorset Place is an exhibition of works published in the latest issue of Photoworks Annual including a short ‘herstory’ of fashion photography selected by Magdalene Keaney.
The Biennial is accompanied by a jam-packed programme of talks, workshops and screenings.
Entrance to all the exhibitions is free. For more information on the many shows and events that make up this year’s Biennial including an outdoor public exhibition of commissioned work by University Of Brighton students visit bpb.org.uk.
