Free event, booking essential: firstname.lastname@example.org
In On Photography Susan Sontag writes: "To collect photography is to collect the world".
This illustrated talk shall consider the imaginative practice of collecting as a means of communication. Photographer and Lecturer Sam Vale will illustrate this concept through outlining his own practice, which investigates the motivation and satisfactions of collecting. In addition to discussing his own work, Sam will examine how photographers and artists such as Martin Parr, Erik Kessels and Richard Wentworth have used collecting to inform their own creative practices. The lecture shall consider how collecting and photography are inventive processes that rely on selection and arrangement to express ideas about the world in which we live.
This event is open to the public.
