Welcome to the new website of the Connected photography exhibition. Connected brings together photographers of all ages, genres and status amateur and professional alike united across the realms of web and social media.

Connected brings together some of the most talented and passionate amateur and pro photographers across the UK. Connected unites the artists by their love of image making and being creative, its about vision and the creative spirit so disregards the formal pomp of status, stature, selection committees and competition. Connected aims to bring this love of and passion for image making to everyone through our exhibition which will feature photographs bought to life in their glorious printed form alongside a multimedia experience to encapsulate the viewer in the photographic Vision.

Each year Connected will feature guest speakers from the across world of photography bringing to the Midlands some of the most respected and talented photographers across the UK today.

Connected is open to everyone and getting involved couldn't be simpler each year as we Rob & Karen of RK Photographic work with all the photographers along the way to help bring the exhibition to fruition each year in April and May at the Patchings Art Centre in Nottingham.

Connected utilises strong partnerships with our official paper and print partner Fotospeed as well as our professional mounting and framing partners Picture Parade in Sheffield to remove as many barriers as possible and make it easier for everyone to exhibit their photography at a world renowned arts venue.


If you would like to get involved with the Connected Exhibition at future exhibitions please drop us a line via e-mail or follow us on Twitter / link with us on Facebook.


Connected truly is an OPEN and COLLABORATIVE photography exhibition all about the IMAGES!


'May the light be with you'
