|Colin Davidson's portrait of Sheeran will feature in the exhibition
Ed Sheeran: Made in Suffolk focuses on the pop star's "deep affection" for his home county and includes images never before shown in public.
It opens in Ipswich in August to coincide with the singer-songwriter's four homecoming concerts.
"The choice of Ipswich shows just how important his Suffolk roots are to him," John Sheeran said.
"Ed has a deep affection for the landscape and its people. This exhibition reflects that - its title is Made in Suffolk, which he was."
As a budding singer he would busk in Ipswich and played at pubs around Suffolk, often to tiny audiences.
Years later, Castle on The Hill would be his "love song for Suffolk", with Framlingham Castle featuring in the video.
The exhibition, at Ipswich's Christchurch Mansion, includes works by the portrait artist Colin Davidson and documentary photographer Mark Surridge, who has toured with Sheeran.
