Artist and editor Anthony Luvera will talk about Photography For Whom?, a new journal which is bringing writing and practice from the community photography movement of the 1970s and 1980s back into circulation.
Published twice yearly, Photography For Whom? seeks to shine light on significant work of the past and to generate debate about contemporary practice. The journal draws on sources which are out of print, largely unknown or difficult to access. Each issue presents a historic text alongside a newly commissioned piece of writing to foster critical consideration of socially-engaged photography today.
Copies of Issue 1 will be available to purchase at the Photobook Fair for £6.
