Little Stories: Photography and Fiction Symposium : 15 June

By | News | No Comments

To open the University of the West of England Photography Degree show: TONIC at Candids Arts Trust there is a 2 hour symposium which is free to attend, but booking is required in advance.

Following this guests are welcome to enjoy the private view of the exhibition.

Little Stories: Photography and fiction’ symposium 6-8pm

This symposium is looking at the relationship between photographic projects and fiction as inspiration. In an era that is so saturated in imagery, generating photographic art is fraught with the dangers of ubiquity & overkill. For young photographers, lacking life experience and therefore primary inspiration, gathering knowledge of photography’s rich history is crucially important. But standing on the shoulders of giants is not a recipe for success, and can produce bland copyist work that can be beautifully crafted and thoughtful, but is rarely potent. The photographers that feature in this symposium have sought to use different counterpoints to their creativity in order to underpin a complex relationship between subject and outcome. They have used fiction as a touchstone for embarking on or making sense of their creative impulses and the photography projects that have resulted
Confirmed speakers are John Spinks, Kalpesh Lathigra and Lisa Stein
