At the end of the week PhotoHastings presents an exhibition of photographs taken by John Cole and Alexander Brattell to celebrate the Hastings International Piano Concerto Competition 2013-2014. Chris Cormack uses the occasion to consider the impact of this competition.


A string of pearls of events and exhibitions along the Hastings/St. Leonards seafront last Friday night showed PhotoHastings in all its creative energy and exuberance. Like an iridescent silver halide print, the seafront positively glowed. From Alexander Brattel’s lively In Conversation at Stade Hall, to the opening of Octet at St Mary in Castle and finally to Norman Road, starting with Bob Mazzer’s truly wonderful Underground and culminating at The Garage for the opening of Underexposed, it was a night when these two towns were anything but underexposed. John Cole followed the creative trail and ended up at the Garage of the Horse and Groom pub to have a look at Underexposed and talk with the artists. Underexposed runs until 30th October.

The hard life at sea

A local photographer was so inspired by the week he spent on a fishing trawler in the North Sea during his final year at uni that he decided to move back to Hastings in order to pursue his continuing passion to document the fishing industry. Hastings photographer Chris Mammone’s exhibition is one of many PhotoHastings shows currently on display in Hastings and St Leonards, and HOT reporter and photographer John Cole went along to the preview night to speak to Chris about his work.
