Another Eye conference - September 11th-13th - celebrating the contribution of women refugee photographers who came to Britain after 1933.
Three days captivated. What an enormous honour and pleasure it was to be part of this.
Presentations covered these photographers’ work across portraiture, reportage, social documentary and architectural photography, and how the European cultural approaches that they brought with them informed British visual culture. In particular we will consider how their experiences both as outsiders and as women shaped their practice.
