Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
This symposium will contextualise the exhibition within the broader theme of street photography and the long-term development of photography in Sheffield. It also aims to emphasise the importance of UK-wide photography networks to continued development and research in the field. The symposium will offer the first chance to find out about the Photographic Collections Network. This is a new organisation, supported by Arts Council England, for anyone involved with photography archives and collections. It launches in October 2016 and Paul Herrmann, one of the co-founders, will give more information about its aims and plans.
Speakers will include Susanna Brown (Curator, Photographs, Victoria and Albert Museum), Simon Roberts (UK-based contemporary photographer), Paul Herrmann (Director, RedEye: The Photography Network and Chairman of the Photographic Collections Network), Paul Hill (UK-based photographer and Professor of Photography) and Ken Phillip (Sheffield-based photographer and former Lecturer of Photography, Sheffield Hallam University).
The symposium will be followed by a special evening viewing of the Street View exhibition 5.45pm-7.45pm with curator Catherine Troiano.
