SecondLook Photomarathon 2018

Date and venue to be announced:

In 2017 Second Look held another PhotoMarathon and was based at The Island and run in parallel with an exhibition there titled "Play Time" for another helping of photo fun. In 2018 this extremely popular event suitable for all ages and abilities will be repeated in the summer with a follow up exhibition a few weeks later.

What is a Photomarathon?

Don’t worry, there is no running involved! The event is a day to challenge participants to think creatively, meet new people and have some fun. Each entrant receives a disposable camera and a list of topics to capture. The subjects have to be taken in the order which they are provided. Only one picture may be taken to represent each topic.

Venue: All Saints’ Church Atrium Pembroke Road, Clifton, Bristol BS8 3ED ran from Friday 21st April 2017 until Sunday 23rd April.

Following on from the recent yearly exhibitions from Second Look, the Bristol based artist-led creative photographic group, this exhibition was one of the best of its' kind. The theme of the exhibition permitted a wide-ranging portrayal of the City with members of Second Look who presented their personal interpretation of the theme. Consequently, visitors to the exhibition found high quality work to suit a variety of tastes to art collectors and families alike.

From ghostly monochrome studies of misty and cloudy scenes to vivid colour renditions of architecture and people, there was something to tempt everybody as an acquisition or decorative feature. Work was included from both international award winning artists and lecturers in photography, semi-professionals and talented amateurs. All work was for sale and has been selected based on quality and composition. We will be returning again next year at the request of All Saints Arts.


After several extremely successful exhibitions in the last few years Second Look held their 2017 OPEN EXHIBITION.

Submissions were invited for the Second Look Open Exhibition based on the theme of "Change", some definitions include: the act of becoming different, or the result of something becoming different:

Exhibition dates: Thursday 16th to Wednesday 22nd February 2017
Exhibition venue: Paperarts Gallery, Merchants Street, Bristol BS1 3EE
