BIRMINGHAM.- The International Photographic Review, organised by Rhubarb Rhubarb and known as Europe’s best event of its kind, celebrates its tenth anniversary this year by posing the provocative statement Photography is dead…Rhubarb has combined retrospectives with up and coming photographers, plus such renowned names as Nadav Kander, to create a high profile gathering of contemporary photographic talent and public participation, promoting a real appreciation of how photography can and does influence our lives. Photograph is dead… presents an eclectic collection of photographic shows, images to buy, debates to attend and events to visit, all with the aim for the public to consider , debate and enjoy the state of photographic art in the contemporary world...

Forty of the most acclaimed international gallerists, photographic publishers and agents arrive in Birmingham as the guests of the International Photographic Review and for three days meet aspiring photographers from all over the world. This year’s experts include: Alison Nordstrom – Curator of Photographs, George Eastman House, Rochester, USA; Alasdair Foster, Director, Australian Centre for Photography, Sydney; Natalie Matutschovsky, Photo Editor – New Yorker; Stephen Mayes, CEO VII Photo Agency, New York; Maarten Schilt, Mets & Schilt Publishers/LUX Photo Gallery, NL, and Chris Littlewood, Curator of Photographs, Flowers Gallery, London.

Rhonda Wilson, Creative Director of Rhubarb-Rhubarb, commented, “Generosity of spirit, avid enthusiasm, collective will, a little risk and the collaboration of a very eclectic private and public partnership in 2009 have all come together to create what we think is our most inspiring event of the last ten years. At a time when traditional photography is disappearing, the digital is being embraced by those outside the professional sector, and fine art photo artists are producing amazing work at an increasingly younger age, we are in the most fascinating, complex and contradictory time for photography, its makers, and for those who regard it for pleasure or economics. We hope that the programme inspires and ignites a passion in those who come and join us.”

International Photographic Review, Photography is Dead… taking place 30th July – 2nd August 2009.
