ULIP will be hosting Peter Coles, writer, photographer, editor, and lecturer, to collaborate upon a unique two-day workshop on photography and the urban landscape. He will be joined by Anne Zeitz (Université Rennes 2) and Carolina Sanchez Boe (Aalborg University).
The event will offer participants opportunities for teaching, debate, and discussion on the urban environment and its expression in art, including a practical photography session in the streets of Northern Paris. This year’s event will be based around the theme of Cartographies: considering urban archaeology and how it can map social change, participants will spend time looking for the traces left on the urban landscape of lives lived and generations moving on and up in and through the city around them.
The event is organised in collaboration with the MA Photography and Urban Cultures at Goldsmiths, University of London and with input from researchers in Urban History and Culture at ULIP.
