See incredible art from over 40 world-renowned photographers as the International Photography Exhibition 162 comes to the Museum of Gloucester.

The longest-running photography exhibition in the world is coming to Gloucester in 2022, as the Museum of Gloucester hosts the International Photography Exhibition 162.

As part of a new three-year partnership with The Royal Photographic Society, IPE 162 will be at the Museum of Gloucester from Thursday 27 January until Sunday 5 June 2022.

Spanning a wide variety of photographic techniques, including portraiture, landscapes and documentary, with themes exploring identity and spirituality, visitors will be able to take in works from 43 internationally-acclaimed photographic artists, anonymously selected from over 1,370 entries from 62 countries.

Highlights of the exhibition include ‘Strange Land’ – a series of otherworldly landscapes from the American West by award-winner Cody Cobb and Chirag Jindal’s ‘Into the Underworld/Nga Mahi Rarowhenua’, a series documenting the intricate lava caves beneath Auckland, New Zealand using an emerging form of lens-based imaging called LiDAR.

There will also be a series of talks and workshops from some of the exhibiting photographers available to book online throughout the exhibition’s run.

The exhibition will be the first of three International Photography Exhibitions held at the Museum of Gloucester over the next three years.

Admission costs £4.95 for adults and £2.95 for those aged 18 to 25, with under 18’s able to attend for free.
