Event Description

This conference aims to stimulate an interdisciplinary debate questioning the meaning of the contemporary rural landscape seen through photography. What does it mean to live in rural space? Does or can photography shape our understanding of the rural? What does the rural mean to urban population? How do we view and evaluate rural depictions within the context of the wider contemporary art world?


Academics and practitioners are invited to present papers / illustrated talks about their work / projects / research.
