‘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.




PhotoBath will, from time-to-time, invite like-minded photographers to collaborate on projects and help shape the network’s future, on an associate basis.

In return for working with us and endorsing and referencing PhotoBath through their projects and websites, we will offer to promote the work of our network of associates, as appropriate.
Associates will not be expected to involve themselves in the day-to-day administration of the network, though contributions to policy and project development will be welcome.

On being invited, potential associates will be asked to submit five representative images and a short biography, which will be included on the PhotoBath website.

We fully intend that the relationship be mutually beneficial to associates and PhotoBath, and be a primary driver for our commitment to future creative collaborations.
