Street Photography: Past, Present and Future with Nick Turpin (Webinar)
- April 24, 2021
10:00 am - 11:30 am
In this webinar, London based Street Photographer Nick Turpin looks at Street Photography, where it has been and where he thinks it is going. Nick suggests that there is a lot to gain from an evolving, broadening and more inclusive definition of the approach. Using examples from those working on the borders of Street Photography as well as from his own practice, Nick will aim to show that the insular world of Street Photography could be richer when influenced and informed by Documentary, Art and Conceptual Photography.
Nick Turpin (https://nickturpin.com/) studied Photography at The University of Westminster in London, in 1990 he joined The Independent Newspaper shooting news, features and interview portraits. In 1998 Nick started a long career as a commercial photographer shooting above the line advertising around the world for clients such as IBM, Jaguar, Microsoft and Toyota. In 2000 Nick founded the first international Street Photography Collective iN-PUBLiC which has played a significant role in the contemporary resurgence of interest in Street Photography as an approach. In 2017 Nick’s project ‘On The Night Bus’ picturing London commuters was published to much acclaim, he is also featured in Bystander: A History of Street Photography and Street Photography Now.
