Book now for the Women in Photography inaugural lecture - 3 October

26 September 2018

SIG: Women in Photography

Lecture: Women in Photography in the Age of Brexit

In the lecture, our Honorary Chair Karen Knorr FRPS will be contextualising her photographic work in relation to other women in photography who have inspired her. Karen will be in conversation with Anna Fox after the lecture then there will be a short break before the panel discussion.

Panel Discussion: Expanded Documentary and Storytelling in Contemporary Photographic Practice

The panel will feature Poulomi Basu, Natasha Caruana, Anna Fox, Charan Singh and Val Williams, and will be chaired by Max Houghton. They will discuss the changing aesthetic and technological strategies employed by contemporary photographic practitioners and curators, in order to enrich their documentary practice. Can technologies such as VR attract new audiences to photo exhibitions and make them more inclusive? Do audiences increasingly demand an immersive experience, or is it still enough just to look? Will photography take a different form in the age of Trump and Brexit? What new forms of storytelling may emerge?

The event is free but you need to book your place through Eventbrite
