The Social: Making (Photo) Books

6:30pm, Wed 29 May 2024

Our informal advice and networking session for photographers based on a theme

This event is part of our Past Programme

Deliberately informal, The Social includes presentations by photography/arts professionals, offering tips on chosen themes and encourages participants to join the conversation and share their own insights.

We'll hear a short talk by each invited speaker and leave time to discuss the theme as a group. The theme for this session is ‘making (photo) books’ with Simon Goode and Jimmi Ho.
