"Decolonising the Camera: Photography in Racial Time"
Thursday, March 05 - 5:30PM to 7:00PM
In his recent book, Decolonising the Camera, Mark Sealy contributes to a form of theoretical uncoupling concerning the making, uses, readings and thinking of photography in western culture. The main objective of the talk is to consider how photography functions within the slippery matrix of colonial power and to bring into sharper focus the other cultural work photographs perform especially if we allow them to be articulated from different perspectives or other ways of seeing.
Mark Sealy, Director of Autograph, ABP, will be in conversation with Liz Wells to discuss his work at Autograph, key publications, and curatorial initiatives including as guest curator for Fotofest 2020.
