A map showing every location of the exhibitions in Lancashire Photography Festival is available.

The first phase of the festival saw Scream! and Hit Singles! installed around Preston city centre during June.

Large-scale images by some of the world’s best photographers have been installed across parks and streets during July, and the new map will lead you to every one of the 13 locations.
