Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
The inaugural Kraszna-Krausz Lecture will be given by internationally renowned writer, public speaker and curator David Campany. Titled Photography and Cinema, from A to Z, the lecture will take the form of twenty-six short reflections on still and moving images. It will consider the relations between Photography and Cinema: stillness and movement, cinema's changing attitude to the depiction of photographers on screen, the freeze frame and the art of the film publicity still.
The lecture series, newly established by the Kraszna-Krausz Foundation, will provide a platform and space for fresh voices and perspectives on photography and the moving image.
Presented in partnership with the History and Theory of Photography Research Centre, the lecture will take place on Monday 30 March 2020 at Birkbeck’s Clore Lecture Theatre, in central London.
The lecture is free to attend but spaces are limited. Tickets must be booked: http://www.bbk.ac.uk/events/remote_event_view?id=11229
