The Social: Writing about your work
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.
This session focuses on writing, particularly in relation to one's own practice, with short talks by photographer Jo Longhurst and writer and historian Julie Bonzon.
Julie Bonzon has written for numerous publications including The Eye of Photography magazine, the catalogue of the 10th Bamako Biennale Telling Time, and Nataal magazine. She is a photography historian reading for an AHRC-funded PhD in History of Art at University College London.
Jo Longhurst is internationally recognised for her explorations of cultural notions of perfection and traditions of photographic practice through photography, video, performance and installation. Her work often involves long-term collaborations with groups of dedicated individuals who are passionate about what they do.
Free, booking essential (Booking for this event will open at noon on Friday 14 June.)
