The Royal Photographic Society’s International Print Exhibition is the longest standing exhibition of its kind in the world, having been held almost every year since 1854.

The 158th Exhibition opened in October 2015 at the East London Photomonth International Photography Festival and will continue touring the UK until August 2016. Embracing all genres and styles of photography, the International Print Exhibition combines photographic skill with ideas rich in meaning, message and technique.

This unique selection of 100 images, curated by a panel of renowned photographers and photographic professionals, will ultimately offer something that will challenge your ideas and capture your imagination. “I believe we have selected an exemplary range of work, reflecting different age groups, nationalities and the varying interests, methodology and vibrant aesthetics of the photographic medium today.” Simon Roberts HonFRPS, 2015 Selector
