This is the new PhotoForum website, launched 10 April, 2018. It is an update of the site that first went live in 1996. As a completely new site it is in something of a "beta testing" mode, with much content still to be added. Please let us know of any functional or factual errors. Over the next few months we will be commissioning further new critical writing (see Reviews & Essays), and posting more archival material from the old site, and our own archives. We also strive to keep up to date with exhibitions, publications and events around the country in the News & Events page.
