Why would you call your event Photomonth when it's actually on for two months? It's a conundrum we'll just have to move on from, because it would be a shame to put you off this vast festival of photography which includes exhibitions, talks and workshops in a selection of venues across east London. Full listings will be announced on the Photomonth website in due course, but already confirmed is 'Imagining the East End' (Cass Gallery, Oct 2-Nov 2), a collection of images inspired by the East End Archive.

PHOTOMONTH METROPOLIS - an exhibition by ROB MACDONALD HACKNEY PICTUREHOUSE 28 October - 30 November 2011 270 Mare Street, London E8 daily 12-11pm A dynamic show of images shot in cities including Tokyo, Madrid, New York, Budapest and San Francisco. Our ideas of a metropolis are formed through imagination and cinema as much as through experience. This exhibition takes as its subject the cityscape – its centre and its margins, exploring the idea of a city rather than representing specific places. This body of work is also featured in the accompanying book – ‘metropolis' www.robmacdonaldphoto.com

For Our Freedom Years

PHOTOMONTH FOR OUR FREEDOM YEARS AT THE TOWNHOUSE 29 October – 11 November 2011 Private View 28 October 6-9 5 Fournier Street, London, E1 6QE forourfreedomyears@blogspot.com for our freedom years is a reaction to women's 'culture', to the idea that as women we share the same ideals, beliefs, ethos and problems, fundamentally the same identity. An identity that is expected and in many cases embraced by females in mainstream society. This exhibition and collective brings together two female artists, Gemma Donovan and Kerry Clark, who draw upon their experiences as women in order to re-evaluate the notions of femininity.
