Event Description



Lecturer: Ms Marina Vaizey MA Cantab BA 

This lecture traces the history of photography, from the 1830s to the present day. It covers pioneers like Daguerre, Fox Talbot, Julia Margaret Cameron and the leading photographers of the 20th century, from  Cartier Bresson to Alfred Stieglitz. It looks at 'art' as well as travel, reportage and documentary photography. Referring to photography in 1839, Paul Delaroche declared "from today painting is dead" but painting has gone from strength to strength. Many artists, from Degas to Hockney take photographs of their own or, like Andy Warhohl, incorporate photography in their art.       

Marina Vaizey is a broadcaster, exhibition curator, journalist, former art critic of the Financial Times and Sunday Times and author of several books on art and photography.
