David Bailey And More
An in-depth interview with Writer and Curator, Sandy Nairne, is set to offer a unique glimpse into the legendary career of British photographer David Bailey, plus other exclusive sessions will include: 'Nothing is brilliant; but some things come close!' from wildlife photographer and BBC Presenter, Chris Packham and a showcase of images spanning 20 years from award-winning UK photographer and Olympus ambassador, Peter Dench titled: ‘The Picture In-Between.’
Ahead of his appearance on the Super Stage, Dan Rubin said: "This is an exciting time to be a photographer - there have never been as many ways to get your work in front of people as there are right now, but the number of social and publishing platforms can also be overwhelming. Figuring out how to navigate this ever-changing, connected, social world is the key to finding new opportunities to practice your craft, and get hired."
Alec Soth, Magnum Photographer, will reflect on the road trips on which he creates his striking photographs during his session, 'From Here to There' and Fashion Photographer, Lara Jade, will share her story; from how she discovered her interest in photography in her home county of Staffordshire to becoming a New York fashion photographer in high demand.
Master of street photography, Bruce Gilden will delve into his work taken from the streets of major world capitals, spanning five decades, whilst photojournalist Nick Danziger will examine in brief, his 25 years of capturing the society’s most dispossessed and disadvantaged.
