To the editor of Amateur Photographer: discussion and Q&A, 10 January 2015
Following the first public screenings of To the Editor of Amateur Photographer, Pavilion and The Hyde Park Picture House invite you to share in a discussion around the work with the artists and Pavilion. The event will be chaired by Irene Revell, Director of Electra.
To the Editor of Amateur Photographer revolves around the testimonies and collected documents linked to the complex and often contested history of Pavilion, the UK's first feminist photography centre. The film examines a radical shift in photography whilst also foregrounding the problems of presenting history through archival fragments and personal recollections.
*Prior to the discussion the film will be screened.
Screening: 2.30pm, discussion: 4-5.30pm
At: Hyde Park Picture House, 73 Brudenell Road, LS6 1JD
