The Disabled Photographers’ Society

03 September 2022 - 09 October 2022

This autumn The Art House is delighted to be hosting The Disabled Photographers’ Society (DPS) annual photography competition exhibition in the Tiled Gallery.

The DPS was formed in 1968 to help make photography accessible to those with disabilities and access needs. Run by a team of volunteers, most of whom are disabled photographers themselves, they have developed a broad knowledge of how photography can be made accessible. Membership is open to all people regardless of experience, and the Society’s prime function is to promote and encourage disabled people to take up photography as a therapeutic and rewarding pursuit.

The exhibition is an annual celebration of the members work and will feature the winning photographers that range from breath-taking skylines to stunning nature shots, selected by a panel of judges including Emily Ryalls, Artist and Art House Darkroom Project Coordinator, alabamathirteen, artist and The Art House previous residency awardee, and internationally renowned photographer, Sunil Gupta.
