The Sussex Photography Project is a new initiative that aims to provide a hub for photography in Sussex.
The Sussex Photography Archive
At the heart of the project is the Sussex Photography Archive, an ongoing project to compile a collection of high quality photography documenting the county - the land and the people. In addition to featuring special collections from selected photographers, the archive is open for submissions, mainly via our Flickr Group. For more information, including image submission requirements, take a look at our archive page.
In due course we will offer some of the very best photos from the archive as prints.
News & Features
The project will feature new material on a regular basis. We will be featuring articles on photography in the county, interviews with photographers, and location features as well as keeping you up-to-date with local photography news including exhibitions and events.
You can keep up-to-date with the Project by following us on Twitter.
We also provide a directory listing suppliers of photographic goods and services within the county.
We offer photography courses which are provided by UK Photo Courses.
The Sussex Photography Project is a Nova Partnership initiative and is the brainchild of Simon Courcha and Andrew Newson. The original idea for the project emerged from Andy's participation in 'What is England' - a project to photograph England county by county, with each county photographed by one photographer in his or her own style around six set themes. As the photographer for East Sussex Andy decided to expand on the themes and produce a larger personal project, 'Sussex'.
It was then just a small step to a more inclusive idea of a photography site for Sussex - East and West.
