A night for new ideas, Photo Scratch is an opportunity for photographers (mainly from a documentary background) to understand how their work is perceived and gain valuable insight into how to take their work further with the benefit of other people’s outside eye. For spectators this is an opportunity to preview projects, offer feedback, and engage in conversations about photography.
The format of the night involves a group of approximately six photographers previewing a project in an incomplete state. These photographers are selected in advanced based on informal applications. Each photographer is given a wall space to display their work in any way they see fit (rough prints, contact sheets, annotations, text, projection etc.). An audience of other photographers and people within the industry are then welcome to discuss the work and leave written feedback for each project. This valuable written feedback is then kept by each photographer for future reference. The night is free for all to attend, but booking is required.
Photographers showing work at this edition will include:
Eleanor de Bonneval
José Sarmento de Matos
