The in-public photographers will be showing over 60 prints at The Derby Museum and Art Gallery as part of the FORMAT 11 International Photo Festival. Nick Turpin has made a short documentary film called ‘in-sight’ which follows some of the groups photographers on the streets of London, New York, Rotterdam and Melbourne.
The film will premier at FORMAT on the 3rd March and will be showing through to the 3rd April 2011. In the meantime, here is a short trailer.
