International Photography Exhibition at the Gloucester Museum – Gloucestershire film & culture

The world’s longest running photography exhibition is coming to Gloucester in 2022, as the Gloucester Museum hosts the 162 International Photography Exhibition.

As part of a new three-year partnership with the Royal Photographic Society, IPE 162 will be at the Gloucester Museum from Thursday 27 January to Sunday 5 June 2022.

Covering a wide variety of photographic techniques, including portrait, landscape and documentary, with themes exploring identity and spirituality, visitors will be able to admire the works of 43 internationally acclaimed photographic artists, anonymously selected from over of 1,370 entries from 62 countries.

Highlights of the exhibition include “Strange Land” – a series of otherworldly landscapes of the American West by award-winning Cody Cobb and “Into the Underworld/Nga Mahi Rarowhenua” by Chirag Jindal, a series documenting the complex lava caves beneath Auckland, New Zealand using an emerging form of lens-based imaging called LiDAR.

There will also be a series of talks and workshops from some of the exhibiting photographers available to book online throughout the exhibition.

The exhibition will be the first of three international photography exhibitions held at the Gloucester Museum over the next three years.

Entry costs £4.95 for adults and £2.95 for 18-25 year olds, with under 18s able to attend for free.
