2017 was the year Kingston-Upon-Hull became a City of Culture with a myriad of events during the year but most importantly
After the success of HIPphotofest 2014,15 & 16, we are developing HIPphotofest 2017 where the cultural importance of photography is recognised. A celebration of a physical art form, but one which is globally and digitally accessible. An event where professionals come to exhibit, network, sell work, exchange ideas, and meet contacts. But also as an opportunity for the newly qualified, amateur & emerging photographer of any age & ability to immerse themselves in the world of photography, find information, gain support, share their passion and showcase their work alongside the best in the world, to a global network of photographers, peers, curators, editors, agents, photo enthusiasts and the visiting public.
For HIPphotofest 2016, we had exhibitions from Matt Finn, Peter Dench, the Travel Photographer of The Year show and many more.
There is so much more to tell you, but we have a festival site for that: http://HIPgallery.co.uk
