The Social: Working Locally
The Social is our bi-monthly advice and networking session for photographers, where participants are encouraged to network and join the conversation. Deliberately informal, each event includes two presentations by photography professionals, who offer tips or advice on the chosen theme, with a short break in between for socialising.
Shot in Soho exhibiting photographer Daragh Soden and Marina Vitaglione, Commissioning Editor at Panos offer tips on the theme of working locally.
Free, booking essential
Daragh Soden is an artist and photographer from Dublin, Ireland living and working in London. His breakthrough project, Young Dubliners, captured young people in his hometown at a time of national economic upheaval and won him the Grand Prix du Jury at the Hyères Festival of Fashion and Photography in 2017. In more recent and ongoing work, Soden has looked at the performance of identity, for example in Queens and Me, an ongoing series of portraits of drag queens in which he also appears.
Marina Vitaglione is the assignments and social media editor at Panos Pictures. She began her career in photography at Fabrica research centre in Treviso, Italy, where she did a year-long residency as an editorial photo researcher. She then worked at the Magnum Photos Paris office, assisting the cultural and exhibitions team, before joining Panos in 2018.
