Latest Vision 2005 update…
Come and learn direct from professional image-makers at the UK’s only event dedicated to aspiring photographers. This year Vision brings you the cutting-edge in contemporary photography, featuring two of Europe’s most exciting new talents, alongside established favourites such as our popular portfolio review and our live fashion shoot.
Exclusive: Antoine d’Agata
A unique opportunity to meet Antoine d’Agata — the new hero of French photography. The Magnum photographer will present his raw, confrontational images in person for the first time in the UK. A contemporary of Nan Goldin and Larry Clark at ICP in New York, d’Agata’s dark, semi-biographical pictures were first published in his 1998 book, Mala Noche, which quickly sold out. Four further books followed, establishing him as one of Europe’s leading new talents. See him first at Vision 2005.
Stephen Gill in conversation with Jon Ronson
The conceptual approach Gill brings to his serialised documentary images has quickly established him as one of the UK’s most recognised photographers. In the 18 months since publishing his first, award-winning book, Field Studies, he has exhibited his work across Europe and brought out two further publications. Jon Ronson is an award-winning writer and broadcaster, best known for his acclaimed documentary series, Secret Rulers of the World and The Double Life of Jonathan King.
