AuthorsDavies, Huw

Chapter in ‘Mythologies, Identities and Territories of Photography: Forever//Now’. Marmalade, G., Harris, P. (eds). Part of an edited selection of essays and presentations delivered at the conference for FORMAT19 International Photography Festival. Some of What Happened Here…v.2.0. presents an historical account of the impact of FORMAT and its establishment as one of the UK’s leading international festivals of contemporary photography and related media. This is contextualised through the ‘place-making’ legacy of Derby, a City with a long-standing heritage in the advancement of the photographic medium and the University, as a major provider of photographic higher education stretching back over six decades. The chapter explores the impact of FORMAT’s transdisciplinary approach through using the vehicle of a thematic festival event, to push forward the boundaries of photographic practice and discourse, and its dissemination to new audiences.
