The RPS International Photography Exhibition returns with its 164th edition showcasing powerful stories and documenting important themes, through the powerful medium of photography. The world’s longest running contemporary photography exhibition will open at RPS Gallery, Bristol in January 2023.

The RPS International Photography Exhibition 164 explores themes of identity, cultural heritage, sexuality and gender, mental health, and environmental and political issues. This edition is especially strong with traditional and alternative processes being used in photography including analogue work, cyanotypes, and collage.

The selected photographs were chosen anonymously from a worldwide open call in which over 6000 images were entered by 3,466 photographers from 48 countries.

Each edition of the International Photography Exhibition invites a panel of leading voices in photography, and they bring an exciting mix of expertise in photography, as artists, curators, editors, and commentators. The IPE 164 guest selection panel were Mariama Attah (Curator, Open Eye Gallery), Amak Mahmoodian (Artist), Ryan Prince (Portrait and Documentary Photographer) and Dr Michael Pritchard, RPS Director of Programmes.
