Thames: Dark River, Still Shining

4th September  – 7th September  11-6pm

PV 4th September 6.30 – 9pm



“You can learn more about the human condition in a voyage along the Thames than on any long journey over the oceans of the world. But water reflects. It has no meaning. So we may say that the Thames is in essence a reflection of circumstances…” Peter Ackroyd

‘Thames: Dark River, Still Shining’ is a photography project documenting people and communities living along the course of the River Thames from the source to the sea, examining their connections to the river and surrounding landscape. The resulting photographs will form a touring exhibition stopping at eight locations along the river from Oxford to Walton-­on­‐Thames and moving on to London where the images will be exhibited at Embassy Tea Gallery and MPA Gallery during September, in conjunction with ‘Totally Thames’ – The Thames Festival.

The art competition is organised by Passion for Freedom, an independent group of friends standing up

for freedom of speech and artistic expression.

The annual international festival is a rare collection of works of “courageous artists” in the categories of

film, photography, painting, sculpture, publications, journalism, book, performance and other forms of

artistic expression. So far the competition has featured hundreds artists from all over the world, including

Sarah Maple, Steve Rosenthal, Robb Leech, Firoozeh Bazrafkan, Mehdi-Georges Lahlou among others.

“Brave” artists from around the world such as Ai Weiwei (who spent three months in prison and is banned

from contacting the media), Jafar Panahi (several times arrested on charges of propaganda against the

Islamic Republic), Johan van der Dong (no galleries in Europe have courage to show his work for the fear

of attacks), Ferri Farahmandi, Azadeh Behroozi and many others, showed their works at the PFF festival

and still have the courage to create despite the threat to their lives and the safety of their family. Some are

forced to hide behind a nickname, others withdraw their works or self-censor themselves to avoid

“offending religious feelings”.

As every year, the entry is open from April. Works can be submitted by 20thSeptember 2014. The

festival will be held in November central London. Location and more details will be announced on later





Please find detailed information, Submission Form, Terms and Conditions on our website.


Deadline: 20 September 2014
