Urban Photo Fest

24-28 October 2014

The Festival

Urban Photo Fest has evolved through a number of conversations, research initiatives and exhibitions involving a wide range of partners and contributors from the areas of visual arts, film and photography, education, urban research and the social sciences. Originally, the festival started out as a series of annual Urban Encounters symposia held at Tate Britain. Eventually, these symposia developed into a series of well-attended workshops, walks, exhibitions and portfolio reviews. People seemed to be enjoying these conversations, and noticeable, they kept coming back for more.

In addition to the main conference at Tate Britain, we are offering a series of walks on the conference weekend Sunday, where participants will be encouraged to think about and experience movement and flow through a variety of urban spaces. And of course, there are the exhibitions with Habitus (graduates from the International MA in Photography and Urban Cultures at Goldsmiths, University of London) at the Menier Gallery, Movement (Association of Urban Photographers) at the Silver Print Gallery, and Close to Nowhere (a selection of images from a ten year project focusing on global cities) at the Greenwich Gallery.

Which brings us to this year’s festival theme of Movement, Mobilities and Migrations. These words mean different things to urbanists, photographers and artists; and that is what we want to encourage people to explore throughout the festival events. Hopefully, people will also take this opportunity to experience their own collective and private migrations around London over the five days, to attend the conference, workshop and seminar; go on walks, visit exhibitions and book onto the masterclass. Most importantly, the festival encourages debate about the nature of contemporary photography, and the possibility to network with others interested in this increasingly vital area of visual and urban practice.

Masterclass with Peter Marlow

 

About the photographer

Urban Photo Fest is pleased to announce this year’s masterclass will be presented by international photographer Peter Marlow, former president of Magnum Photos. Peter’s work focuses on apparently incidental scenes that speak of social relations. His images have a compelling poetic quality and address notions of stasis, movement and change.

 

About the Masterclass

Following an initial presentation of his work and discussion of related theoretical and technical issues, participants will introduce their images. The Masterclass will focus on how to build a visual story and participants will be given a working brief based on the themes discussed, and then work on producing a number of images to bring back to the group for feedback and critique.

 

What you will need

In order to participate you will need to submit a short description of the visual story that you intend to develop during the Masterclass along with a portfolio (up to 10 images)

 

Due to the duration of the course participants are advised to produce and edit their work digitally. The images will need to be edited and put into a Power Point format for next day feedback.
