How do we tell stories with photographs, and how do other mediums inform our photographic method?

Stills Research Associate & Tutor David Grinly will present an evening lecture using Dostoevsky’s “Poor Folk” as a way for us to consider and discuss approaches to socially engaged photographic methods.

The lecture will use sections from Dostoevsky’s Poor Folk to introduce and consider ways in which we represent social situations in literature and the arts, and what impact this has on our “real life” perceptions of poverty and the traumas it produces.

Considering various approaches from photography and from other forms, the lecture will provide the impetus for questions, discussion and further reflection.

David's lecture follows the talk and workshops delivered by Margaret Mitchell, and aims to provide a contectual and historical framework to social documentary photography.
