The Museum of Barnstaple and North Devon are excited to announce the theme of HOME for the Documentary Photography Open held during February to May in the temporary exhibition gallery. The exhibition is free to enter with a public prize of £200.
Providing a platform for amateur to established contemporary photographers, the exhibition looks to celebrate the tradition of documentary photography in North Devon giving contemporary photographer’s exposure, enhancing their practice and helping to document this beautiful part of the country.
The theme of ‘Home’ has been selected for 2021 and the museum is asking photographers across North Devon to submit an image of what home means to them and their community. The photography theme has particular relevance this year because of the recent Covid-19 pandemic and how people’s way of life has been affected by lockdown.
