The conference seeks to address collaboration and the spectrum of collective working methods which have defined and keep informing some of the independent practices in the field of photography in the 20th and 21st centuries. Our focus is on the UK and France, and seeks to envision case studies in a comparative approach.

Proposals could address, but are not limited to, the following issues:

  • Photography collectives then and now
  • Photographic agencies
  • Participation or collaboration?
  • Community photography
  • Workers’ photography leagues
  • Archival and curatorial issues raised by collective practices
  • Collective forms of publishing
  • Crowdfunding: a form of collaboration?
  • Photography, public art and public display
  • Social media, digital networks transforming the distribution of images: is sharing collaborating?
  • Photography education and the challenge of collaboration

Proposals of approximately 300 words with a short biographical note should be sent by November 15th 2019 to Karine Chambefort-Kay (Université Paris-Est Créteil) at chambefort@u-pec.fr and Mathilde Bertrand (Université Bordeaux-Montaigne) at mbertrand@u-bordeaux-montaigne.fr
