About the Symposium
The National Photography Symposium explores the most critical and talked-about subjects for photography and photographers. Top experts, thinkers and commentators offer the most interesting perspectives on what’s happening now and next in photography, as it affects anyone working in the medium. This year’s Symposium focuses on integrity in photography, and features three days of talks, debates, seminars and discussions.

NEWFOTOSCAPES seeks to navigate the evolving topography surrounding the image in the twenty-first century; offering a focused eye on the contemporary creative author-curator and image-maker and on the possibilities afforded by an increasingly complex professional landscape. Jonathan Shaw advocates a new way of thinking about photographic production and education in a post-digital era.
