This weekend sees the opening of the acclaimed Brighton Photo Biennial, the successful, inspirational and creative festival of international photography.

Now in its fifth season, BPB 2012 attempts to present an exciting ambitious event to wide and varied audiences. Established art spaces, museums and various cultural attractions around Brighton’s urban landscape will host an array of free exhibitions, artist’s talks and photographic workshops and events.

The theme of this year's Biennial entitled " Agents of Change: Photography and the Politics of Space", examines a wide range of photographic practices looking at how space is constructed, controlled and contested. The event will bring international and emerging photographers and artists together to showcase a collection of works reflective of these themes.

Works by photographers including Julian Germain, Edmund Clark and Jason Larkin will be on display together with many more creative’s collectively exploring the role of photography within the urban environment.

With this packed programme of exhibitions and artistic events across the city, be sure not to miss this creative hub of activity that will undoubtedly fulfil your artistic appetite.
