North East Photography Network (NEPN)

NEPN was set up in 2009 to develop and promote photography in the North East of England. The region has produced some exceptionally high-quality photographers and supported a diverse range of practices. Our aim is to build on this history, providing a context for the future development of the region’s photographic culture. We engage with a broad range of contemporary photography, including documentary and photojournalism alongside lens-based visual arts practice.

Activities and Events
Aimed at new and emerging practitioners as well as established photographers, our activities include a programme of public talks by leading practitioners as well as more informal discussion events with curators, publishers and photography critics. We also host portfolio-review days, where you will be able to show your work and get advice from leading professionals in the field.

We want to facilitate opportunities for photographers in the region and beyond. As part of this, we develop and manage a series of photography commissions in partnership with other cultural organisations.

Advisory Sessions
Individual sessions are available to discuss professional development and creative development. If you would like to meet up please email: amanda.ritson@sunderland.ac.uk giving a brief overview of your practice and areas you would like to discuss.
NEPN welcomes approaches from other organisations and individuals to discuss potential collaborations and partnerships.
