This is the seventh blog in a series on COVID-19 and lockdown, edited by firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com
Preparing for our upcoming discussion with Professor Paul Hill MBE, DFine Art, DArts, founding Chairman RPS Contemporary Group, Paul corresponded with us about his current work. He said “I was fascinated by how people being interviewed on television were using Zoom, Skype, and FaceTime in differing and DIY ways at a time of severe crisis to respond to questions about the pandemic. There is something quite often comic about these public interactions, despite the serious words being uttered by the talking heads. It has inadvertently exposed the interior decor of the homes of politicians, academics, reporters, directors, doctors, nurses, and scientists in lockdown to millions of television viewers as well as revealing the technical limitations of the users.”
Paul has been working on "Talking Heads" since March this year and will be discussing it online to the Contemporary Group on the 28th September as well previewing – for the first time – the third edition of his book, “Approaching Photography” (Routledge) which is coming out this December. He was honoured with the Royal Photographic Society's Education Award in 2016 and runs workshops for the RPS and also in person and online with his partner, Maria Falconer FRPS. http://www.hillonphotography.co.uk/
