Photographer George Georgiou was born in London to Greek-Cypriot parents and graduated in photography from the Polytechnic of Central London. At this seminar, Georgiou will speak about his two series of street photographs, titled Fault Lines/Turkey/East/West and Invisible: London, the former taken across Turkey, the latter in London.
The History of Photography research seminar series aims to be a discursive platform for the discussion and dissemination of current research on photography. From art as photography and early photographic technology to ethnographic photographs and contemporary photography as art, the seminar welcomes contributions from researchers across the board, whether independent or affiliated with museums, galleries, archives, libraries or higher education, and endeavours to provide scholars with a challenging opportunity to present work in progress and test out new ideas.
The seminars usually take place once a term, on Wednesday evenings at 5.30pm in the Research Forum, unless otherwise stated. The papers are followed by an informal discussion and a reception.
Organised by Julian Stallabrass (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Pei-Kuei Tsai
