Walkin’ in Derby

It’s back!   Is it really four years since I last went to the Format Photography Festival at Derby?   Well yes and like the last time I came it is a rum bag of stuff.   One of this year’s highlights was the new and experimental approach – displaying photographs in the dark – nice one Riverlights!

We took in most of the sites in the centre of Derby and my overall impression was that there are a bunch of photographs with some really great photographs and ideas in a sea of stuff.   Is it worth visiting?   Yes but for two reasons:  Firstly it is great to have a large photographic festival in the East Midlands and secondly if you go in the next two weeks you’ll get to wonder just what the Ladyboys of Bangkok show is all about?

Actually there are some great things to see and you get about a 6 Km walk visiting most of the sites in the city…come on you know it makes sense and of course don’t forget those ladyboys!
