Guernsey Photography Festival

The Guernsey Photography Festival 2011 programme brings together major names in international photography including Richard Billingham, Carolyn Drake, Samuel Fosso and Martin Parr
This year’s festival explores the theme of IDENTITY and will reveal a multitude of interpretations from personal to social and political. From Francesco Giusti’s Congolese dandies in colourful suits, to Carolyn Drake’s compelling documentation of the changing landscapes and communities of Central Asia’s ‘Paradise Rivers’, and Samuel Fosso and Nelli Palomäki’s striking takes on classic portraits, notions of self and place are presented in diverse contexts.
