Online Symposium: Photography Beyond the Image, Saturday 28 November CANCELLED

Saturday 28 November 2020, 9.30am – 1pm

Photography Beyond the Image

Recent years have seen photographic studies move beyond the analysis of the visual product. From a focus on photographs as the privileged points of access for studying photography, thus supporting a predominant understanding of the medium as a representational tool, the field is today embracing a more holistic approach. This has brought photography into a much needed interdisciplinary and intermedial analytical environment, and alerted us to the social, cultural and commercial entanglements that shape and are shaped by photographic practices.

This one-day symposium seeks to examine these intellectual trends by reflecting on their postulates, methodologies and future directions.

Dr Geoffrey Belknap (National Science and Media Museum)
Professor Patrizia Di Bello (Birkbeck)
