Begins Monday 30th September 2024



This series of talks, Global Histories, will look at the ways in which photobooks, design, and politics have played in photographic history. It will look at regional histories and how conflict, colonialism, independence, and economics have helped shaped both the photography of a place and the ways in which it is disseminated.

This series is ideal for anybody who seeks to understand how images are made and understood. It will enrich your understanding of the multiple ways in which images can be read, and will also add layers to how you make images and how you communicate those images to a broader audience.
