Britain’s biggest curated photography festival starts in Brighton tomorrow (Saturday 6 October) with tens of thousands of visitors expected to attend dozens of exhibitions and other events.

The Brighton Photo Biennial 2012 (BPB12) will be curated by Celia Davies, the head of programme at local photography agency Photoworks, and programme curator Ben Burbridge.

The Brighton Photo Biennial, which runs until Sunday 4 November, attracted 60,000 visitors when it was last held in 2010.

This year’s event, the fifth biennial, will showcase the work of international and emerging photographers and artists.

Spacewords Brighton

This year’s theme is Agents of Change: Photography and The Politics of Space.

This year’s programme focuses on how space is constructed, controlled and contested – and how photography is implicated in these processes.

It aims to provide a critical space to think about relationships between the political occupation of physical sites and the production and dissemination of images.

All exhibitions and installations are free. Some workshops, screenings and Q&A sessions have ticket prices attached.
