The Royal Photographic Society Education – Workshops and Lectures in Partnership with TheAppWhisperer

Share

I just mentioned how delighted I am to be working closer with The Royal Photographic Society (The RPS) and reported on their very generous bursaries (see here).  I also wanted to draw your attention to a series of Visual Literacy Lectures that The RPS are hosting within the UK during the year.

This year’s educational focus is on Women in Photography and featured photographers range from early pioneers such as Julia Margaret Cameron and renowned street photographers including Vivian Maier to contemporary photographers such as Gina Glover and Eva Stenham.

This series of talks reflects on the historical and contemporary contribution made by women to photography. From the perspective of the photographer, we will be discussing their work and asking how and if gender makes a difference to the way they work and the influence it may have on their subject.

Further talks focus on photographers known for their iconic images of women before and during the age of glamour, and consider the unique relationship these photographers had with their sitters.
