Reading Photography, Week 1: The Camera

The first in a six week programme of evening discussions led by Stills Tutor and Research Associate, David Grinly, inviting you to respond to a lecture on the Nature of Photography now. How have changes in technology affected the way photography is experienced and understood, and how have these things changed the coordinates of our communication.

This week we will be considering The Camera: what is the nature of the machine, how does it work and what impact do the operations of the camera have on the viewer of the image, expert or non-expert? What does shutter speed mean other than a mechanical measurement of time? And what happens when we don’t have a mechanical shutter anymore? 

This event is bookable individually or as part of the full course running for 6 sessions, 23 May - 27 June
