‘PHOTOBATH’ was established in 2014 to celebrate, promote and support documentary and fine art photography in Bath and the surrounding area. We are a non-commercial organisation with a collective ethos, and our priorities are to support local photographers, and stimulate new photographic practices through challenging and experimental projects. We have organised exhibitions, workshops and publications, including collaborations with respected local and national partners, and have earned a reputation for delivering on ambitious programmes in the City.

‘PHOTOBATH’ is being relaunched in 2021, with a renewed commitment to promote the best documentary and fine art practise. Formal membership has been discontinued and participation in ongoing projects will be by invitation, involving photographers producing interesting and stimulating work, who are committed to contributing to our aims, objectives and ethos.


Between 2012 – 2020 Photobath has produced two main exhibitions, four member exhibitions, one virtual exhibition and we have published four books of photography. We are currently in production of another key exhibition of amazing photography for 2022.




At PhotoBath we are constantly on the look-out for new photographers to feature on the site. However we are also keen to maintain a very specific style of creative documentary imagery. We are looking for photographers with a confident and consistent vision who make images that can be described as documentary. Photographers who are pushing the boundaries of what is traditionally considered Documentary whilst maintaining creative integrity go to the front of the queue.
