Event description

Description

This years Fieldwork conference celebrates and critically explores one of photography’s most contentious areas that of documentary practices. Despite past critiques, it continues to flourish, a home to a multitude of traditional and evolving strategies for using the camera to contemplate or comment on the world today. The conference, through a range of presentations by established practitioners and academics, will examine the ideas, motivations and issues that surround these modes of working. What can documentary strategies realistically achieve and how is the genre still evolving into new modes of working in the light of past critiques and today’s evolving contexts?
