The Photo Oxford. Women and Photography: Ways of Seeing and Being Seen

The Photo Oxford 2021 festival will run from 15 October to 15 November 2021 in venues and public spaces across Oxford and online. The majority of the prgramme is free of charge.

The fourth Photo Oxford festival continues the theme Women and Photography: Ways of Seeing and Being Seen, to complete and expand on the 2020 festival, which was restricted by the Covid situation but did offer an exciting taste of the rich potential of the theme.

The 2021 festival will present a diverse and ambitious programme of free exhibitions, outdoor installations and related events, projections and film screenings, exploring the theme and women as photographers, photographic subjects, curators, collectors and researchers. 

The festival offers professional development opportunities for photographers, including portfolio reviews, and  exhibitions by emerging photographers who were finalists in the 2020 Open Call. Alongside the new and emerging, there are insights into precious photographic archives of photographs by and of women who were pioneers in their craft. 

The festival is delivered to the public in collaboration with venues across the city, and with local, national and international partners, and includes public engagement projects.
