Amateur Photography, The Final Frontier: Developing Histories of Marginalised Popular Photographic Practices

Wakefield Camera Club
16 June 2014, 19.30-21.30

My talk will explore whether it is possible or desirable to position unaccounted for amateur photographic practices in relation to other dominant histories of photography. Considering how exclusive and limited the field of photographic history has been so far in its scope, I will look into photographic practices carried out away from photography’s professional and artistic spheres, within the domestic environment and its surroundings, as well as at one’s own leisure, as part of the convivial gatherings of photography enthusiasts. A great portion of the talk will be dedicated to DIY analogue photographic processes, with a view to opening up the question of photographic history anew.
