This online seminar seeks to address collaboration and the spectrum of collective working methods which have defined and keep informing some of the independent practices in the field of photography in the 20th and 21st centuries. The focus is on the UK, France, and Australia, with a number of case studies envisioned in a comparative approach. The seminar includes panel discussions and talks with practitioners. It is free and open to the public. The sessions will be held as online events (French time). To register and receive a link to the online sessions, please follow this link.
