This two day international conference examines war photography as the result of pragmatic and strategic transactions and interactions concerning business, militarism and consumption. International speakers, including scholars, curators, picture editors and artists, will address the ways in which issues of supply and demand have shaped the field of war photography, and how this field has articulated with other forms of industrialised and commercial activity.
The Business of War Photography is co-convened by Dr. Tom Allbeson and Pippa Oldfield, Head of Programme at Impressions Gallery and Doctoral Fellow at Durham University.
The conference is presented in association with the Centre for Visual Arts and Culture at Durham University, in partnership with Durham Light Infantry Museum & Durham Art Gallery and Impressions Gallery, Bradford. Supported by Royal Historical Society.
