Image 19 would like to invite you to a one day symposium questioning contemporary photographic topics. The symposium will explore the position of photography in terms of its production, reception and circulation in a wide range of contexts within society.

Presentations will address (amongst others) the position of the artefact  in a digitally dominant world; how the democratisation of production means has redefined authorship; the experience of vernacular photography and its effect on memory; current representation and repercussions of social media on different groups; the meaning of information embedded in the layered image; the debate of accessibility within digitised archives; and the use of visual language as a new opportunity in education.

The symposium will take place on the 26th of February 2014 from 9.30am at The Herbert Art Gallery, in Coventry (map).

Online versions will be made after the event has taken place and will live here at
