Photography is dead. Discuss. That's exactly what a panel headed up by Stephen Mayes, Image Future Forecaster and Managing Director of VII Photo Agency, intend to spend this Thursday afternoon doing. The panel will include publisher Jon Levy, photographer Brian Griffin, Alison Nordtrom who is curator of photography at George Eastman House, MaryAnn Camilleri from Magenta Publishing for the Arts, and John Cross of Peter Bailey Company.
The debate is part of Rhubarb-Rhubarb's International Photographic Review and, under the umbrella of the review's provocative title, the panel and audience will be tackling such thorny questions as what is photography turning into, does the imagery we encounter on a daily basis deceive our consciousness, is copyright now virtually defunct, has photography lost its soul, and many others.
The review runs from 30th July to 2nd August. For more information and to book tickets, visit the Rhubarb Rhubarb website.
