Leap Then Look: #photographyacts

For Photo Fringe 2020 we've worked with Leap Then Look for a project that everyone, from school children to experienced professional photographers, could take part in.

#PhotographyActs enabled both on and offline creative responses.


A series of community workshops open to all, offered opportunities to people of all ages to play and explore, discovering new ways of seeing together, constructing images and actively experiencing the world. Resulting images can be viewed in the digital exhibitions below.

On Instagram

Every Monday throughout the festival, Leap then Look posed a different instruction on our Instagram account with ideas and examples to get people experimenting with photography in new ways.

Resulting images posted to Instagram, tagged #photographyacts @photofringe @leap_then_look, became part of this collective project, collated and reposted each week to our networks. You can also enjoy a selection of the resulting images in the digital exhibition below.

You are welcome to post your responses to the prompts to Instagram tagging
