The twenty-first annual Hereford Photography Festival opens on Friday 28th October to Saturday 26th November 2011, featuring 35 exhibitions and 21 events.

Simon Bainbridge, editor of The British Journal of Photography, curates the exhibition at Hereford Museum and Art Gallery this year.

Time & Motion Studies presents the works of five photographers, each the result of deliberate and sustained observation. But more than that, each employs a carefully thought-out strategy for their study, a methodology by which to transcribe and communicate ideas about the world, tackling subjects that aren’t always obviously photogenic. For the photographers in the exhibition, the ideas they are trying to communicate take prescience over aesthetic concerns, although these remain important, both in terms of engaging viewers and in contributing to the development of a wider photographic language. Photographers include Vanessa Winship, George Georgiou, Donald Weber, Robbie Cooper and Manuel Vasquez.

Other venues include The Courtyard Centre for the Arts, Hereford Cathedral, Hereford Museum & Art Gallery, Halo Leisure Pool, The Hereford Deli, Discover Herefordshire Centre and Hereford College of Arts. The festival's artistic director is Caitlin Griffiths.
