Following a successful opening night last week, we are delighted to let you know that Ffocws 2023 is now open!

We would like to thank everyone who came along to the exhibition preview in support of the artists and the Ffocws initiative. We are very grateful for your continued support.

Ffocws 2023 brings together the work of fourteen talented artists touching on diverse themes ranging from identity, family, migration and disability to AI and community art practice. The wide-ranging individual perspectives on show remind us of the creative opportunities photography offers for human connection in our unpredictable and changing world.

The exhibition continues until 12 January 2024.


Find out more about the ten artists who were selected for Ffocws 2023 through this series of online talks. Over the three sessions, the artists are invited to talk about their work on show in the exhibition and audience members are encouraged to ask any questions they may have.

These events are taking place online via Zoom. If you have any access requirements, please email [email protected] prior to the event, and we will do our best to provide support.
