Colin Jarvis (MA Photo, FD Photo, PGCE, ARPS) is a professional landscape photographer based in the North West of England. He has worked as a photographer and educator for many years and his work has been featured in books and magazines as well as exhibited in London, Liverpool and Manchester in private exhibitions and in association with the Royal Institute of British Architects. Colin regularly leads on-location workshops for the RPS landscape group.
This talk is slightly different from many photographic lectures as the first section is devoted to the work of other practitioners of the art that were very influential in the development of photographic practice. It covers in particular a group of photographers called the New Topographics, there is an interesting article in the Guardian about their work:
Colin explains: "The focus of the work is the everyday, banal, urbanisation of the natural environment. Not a topic you would immediately find aesthetically pleasing but there is a certain beauty to it. It was this beauty that I tried to explore in the MA from the concept of Non-Place. A non-place is a neologism coined by the French anthropologist Marc Augé to refer to anthropological spaces of transience where the human beings remain anonymous and that do not hold enough significance to be regarded as 'places'. The book, entitled “Non-places: Introduction to an Anthropology of Supermodernity” formed the basis of my MA."
The talk then goes on to show some of Colin's early work in developing this theme and the finished portfolio for the MA submission at the University of Cumbria.
The second half of the talk is a presentation of more traditional images.
There will be time for questions and answers at the end of the talk.
Event times are stated in UK time.

Cancellation by us
Event leaders are asked to make plans for alternative activities or locations in the case of poor weather and, in most cases, events will proceed despite poor weather unless, in the view of the event leader, the weather will lead to unacceptable safety risks or very little chance of successful photography. It is inevitable, however, that occasionally an event will be postponed or cancelled for this or another reason beyond the RPS’s control. If an event is postponed we will transfer your booking to the rearranged event, with the option of a refund if the rescheduled date is not suitable for you.
Occasionally an event may also be cancelled owing to lack of bookings. So if you wish to attend an event, don’t leave it till the last minute to book as it may be too late.
If an event is cancelled we will give you as much notice as we are able and any payment by you to the RPS in respect of the event offered as a full refund. In the case of events cancelled because of lack of interest we will aim to give at least three weeks’ notice wherever possible.
Please note we are NOT able to refund any associated or consequential costs including but not limited to travel, accommodation, insurance premium or other costs incurred by you in order to attend the event.
