4.30pm in Lecture Theatre C – Expanded Documentary and Storytelling in Contemporary Photographic Practice
A panel discussion to mark the occasion of the Women in Photography inaugural lecture, featuring Poulomi Basu, Natasha Caruana, Anna Fox, Charan Singh and Val Williams, chaired by Max Houghton.
The panel 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 it 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 and open to all but you will need to book your place through Eventbrite.
