The Photographic Angle (TPA) is a charitable organisation set up to promote the education of the public in the art and science of photography. We stage exhibitions that are free to enter and that travel across the UK transforming otherwise empty spaces into photographic galleries. Exhibitions comprise large scale photographs together with technical information, information about the photographic theme, boards containing inspirational quotes and boards containing hints and tips on photography. Professional, student and amateur photographers submit their work for possible inclusion in one of our travelling exhibitions, which are curated by our Head of Design. The work that we do offers the public a chance to explore this fascinating medium which can be art, a profession, or simply a pastime.

Our submission process has changed

We’d like to highlight a small change which has been introduced alongside TPA’s exciting new website, this being the change to our submissions process. Anyone who has submitted work to be included in one of our catalogues in the past, would have done this via a submissions page link. However, due to an overwhelming and fantastic response to our competitions, TPA have decided to curate its catalogues from the best of our competition entrants. The quality of work submitted to competitions over the years has been outstanding hence the decision to merge the two.

In short, anyone interested in having their work displayed at our venues should enter our competitions instead. The favourites will be contacted in due course throughout the year as and when a new catalogue print is scheduled. Please view our competitions page for further details.

A Splash of Colour Exhibition News

A splash of colour is now exhibiting in Reading. It will be there from now until Wednesday 24th May, open each day from 10am to 3pm.

Visual story-telling is made so much more effective through the use of colour, which can make a photograph feel more vibrant, exciting, mysterious, scary, serious or even sad.
This exhibition brings together a full spectrum of colour images from all aspects of our lives.

We hope to see you there!

Creativity Exhibition News

We are heading towards our last Creativity exhibition for this quarter. We will be opening in Saxon House, Chelmsford on Wednesday 24th May and will remain there until Sunday 28th May, open each day from 10am to 3pm, as usual.

The images in this exhibition reflect a wide range of photographic subjects, however they all capture and celebrate the individual photographer’s personal creative flair.
Some of the images seen here are thought-provoking and may challenge our preconceived ideas of what constitutes a photographic image.

We look forward to welcoming you!
