Bath Photography Festival Exhibition at FaB 2018

Real / Unreal

In association with ‘Fringe Arts Bath Festival’, we created a photographic call out asking artists to respond to the theme Real/Unreal.


We are bombarded with photographic imagery every day, through news channels, social media, posters, signs and product labels. These images can inspire us, make us question and influence us. However, are these images real or portraying the truth and does this matter?

Ever since the invention of photography, images have been doctored. The media lends itself to many editing processes; this allows the photographer to change what they see and therefore, the viewer’s perception.

Always remember and never forget, that the unreal is so very real“.

This is our debut event, with the mindset of developing the Bath Photography Festival in future years.  The aim is to promote and encourage creative photography. The festival runs from 25th May to 10th June 2018.

Please visit the venue and artist pages for exhibition locations and artist statements.

On behalf of FAB and the Bath Photography Festival, I would like to thank everyone who has submitted work to the Real / Unreal call out. Without this and the support from the venues and sponsors this project could not happen.

Simon Taylor.
