What is Format?

Format is about photography. But it is not about the kit and it is not about pretty pictures.

The hope

Bringing some sense of personal (hopefully negotiated and collaborative) resolution of these various strands is the ultimate aim of Format.

But as is so often the case with the best journeys, it is the way-finding, obstacles and off-piste wanderings that prove most rewarding. I hope it will be so here.
