An afternoon of stimulating discussions with artists, curators and academics that draw on the themes and theories explored in PHOTO OXFORD 2017, a series of explorations into the complex and often contradictory relationship between photography’s capacity to both conceal and reveal.

The event starts with an introduction from Bodley’s Librarian and Chair of PHOTO OXFORD, Richard Ovenden. This will be followed by a lecture on the practice of reconceptualising photographic archives, discussions on the Russian Criminal Tattoo Archive, Edgar Martins’ Siloquies and Soliloquies on Death, Life and Other Interludes, and Taco Hidde Bakker discussing Taking Off. Henry, My Neighbor with artist Mariken Wessels. The day concludes with Martin Parr in conversation with Richard Ovenden, discussing the making of his newly-commissioned project OXFORD.
