Martin Parr, ever present in creative approaches to getting photography out to the public in new and different ways, is curating the Brighton Biennial this year.

Brighton Photo Biennial 2010, entitled, New Documents, is guest curated by the internationally renowned photographer, editor and curator Martin Parr.

Brighton Photo Biennial is the largest and most exciting curated photography festival in the UK, and, with 58,000 visitors in 2008, one of the best attended in the world.

Brighton Photo Biennial 2010: New Documents will reflect the immediacy and vibrancy of contemporary photographic practice by a new generation of practitioners, the eclectic passions found in collections of historic and vernacular photography produced by commercial and amateur photographers, and present new commissions by internationally celebrated photographers informed and inspired by the diverse communities and contexts of Brighton & Hove.

Artists and photographers include: Wout Berger (NLD), Mohamed Bourouissa (DZ), Alejandro Chaskielberg (ARG), Josef Heinrich Darchinger (DEU), Esteban Pastorino Diaz (ARG), Ju Duoqi (CHN), Stephen Gill (UK), Oscar Fernando Gomez (MEX), Rinko Kawauchi (JPN), Molly Landreth (USA), Oumar Ly (SEN), Dhruv Malhotra (IND), Billy Monk (ZAF), Suzanne Opton (USA), Viviane Sassen (NLD), Alec Soth (USA) and Zoe Strauss (USA).  Many of these artists will visit Brighton & Hove to present on their work during the Biennial Opening Weekend.
