Evergreen: Mobile Photo Network / Format Festival 2015

My photograph Evergreen was selected for the Mobile Photo Network’s #formatevidence interactive exhibition at this year’s Format International Photography festival!




MPN made 4 curated selections over the 4 weeks of the festival – this was in week 2.  To see the full list of photographers included here click through to the image on instagram. From there you can also see the other 3 curated displays.

Throughout FORMAT festival, MPN invited instagram users to submit photographs on the theme of personal evidence.  They printed the best images that explored the theme of EVIDENCE in original and insightful ways, for exhibition from 13th March – 12th April 2015.

This interactive exhibition invited participants to select a photograph and engage with the photographer by reworking the image.  Camdiary made this great reinterpretation of mine (here it is on instagram):
