Friday, March 05 - 10:00AM to 10:45AM
Within the framework of the Archive and Research Centre for
Culturally Diverse Photography, this talk will present Autograph
ABP's 20-year history in context and critically explore issues
around diversity, cultural identity and representation within photographic
practice in the 21st Century. A collection of seminal
photographs, images in the Archive rang in genre from fine art,
social documentary to constructed high street studio and vernacular
photography. As an online digital image bank and research
resource, the Archive highlights a missing chapter in the cultural
history of photography. Launching in 2011, its dedicated public
programme of education, outreach and participatory photography
projects will transform the collection into a continuously
growing, living archive.
Established in 1988, Autograph ABP is an international photographic
arts charity that addresses issues of cultural identity
and human rights. We develop, exhibit and publish the work of
photographers from culturally diverse backgrounds and advocate
their inclusion in all areas of exhibition, publishing, education
and commerce in the visual arts.
