These are the slides from the presentation I was invited to give at the Two Ways of Life Symposium. The talk explored the opportunities that can arise if and when we adopt new mindsets for photographers and photography in a digital era. I was also able to offer a sneak peek to my latest project in partnership with GRAIN (The Photography Hub).

This event has been developed in the context of the exhibition ‘From Darkroom to Digital’ at Wolverhampton Art Gallery, which is co-curated by Wolverhampton Photographic Society, and features Oscar Rejlander’s pioneering composite picture ‘The Two Ways of Life’. This one-day event will enable photographers to explore and discuss analogue and digital image making, engage with professionals in critical debate and seek advice on their own career and portfolio development.

Our presenters and leading experts are Paul Herrmann (photographer, writer and Director of Redeye), Dean Kelland (artist, writer and teacher), Karen Newman (curator, writer and academic), Pete James (curator and writer) and Jonathan Shaw (artist, writer and academic).
