Talk: David Campany on Photographs (online)

18.30 BST (on Zoom)

Join award winning writer David Campany to discuss his new book

David Campany is one of today’s leading writers and curators on photography and contemporary art. This event marks the publication of On Photographs, a new collection of essays and commentary on a selection of photographs chosen by Campany — some of which will be familiar and some new to readers. In this talk Campany will explore themes of authorship, the photograph as both art and document, and the malleability of meaning. 

Discussion moderated by Luisa Ulyett (The Photographers' Gallery). 

Details on how to access the talk will be confirmed upon registration. Please check your junk folders if you haven't received an email from TPG staff confirming your place. 


David Campany is a curator, writer and educator, based in London.
