Just Another Photo Festival
We are a a guerrilla photography, film and new media festival that democratizes visual media by bringing it back to the world itself and forging new audiences.
We believe that access to photography and the arts should be open and democratic.
From blue collar districts through to slums; from the banks of the Ganges to rural villages and everywhere in between, we have reached out to a variety of communities to build a grassroots platform for the visual arts.
JAPF is photography and film for people of all classes, vocations and backgrounds.
We are inspired by new modes of storytelling; we seek not to emulate the monolithic forms of the past but seek to create a festival is reflective of new digital forms and the interconnectivity of contemporary life.
With no base we will constantly evolve, adapting to the needs of the audience and the spaces to which we travel.
Gallerist and curator Carine Dolek called the us, “adventurous, daring and militant” and JM Colberg, in Conscientious Photography Magazine, said it “brings photography back to what the medium does best. It brings it back to the photographs themselves, and these photographs are shown to people who otherwise wouldn’t have access to them.”
