About the workshop


Photography is unusual among the arts in that it belongs equally to pages, walls and screens. In doing so, it can disturb the hierarchies of culture, crossing platforms, producing hybrid modes of communication and experience. Today, it is commonplace for photographers’ projects to exist in many modes at once – exhibition, publication, website, magazine feature, public lecture and more.
As a curator of exhibitions, a writer, and an editor, David Campany has a wealth of experience moving between different registers and contexts of the photographic image. In this five-day workshop, structured as a series of illustrated talks, discussions and workshops, David takes you through his own practice and approach, while highlighting keys examples from photography’s rich past and present.
Between Exhibition and Publication will appeal to artists, photographers, writers and curators, allowing for a mix of perspectives from participants with different backgrounds.
