One-day conference on celebrated documentary and press photography Bert Hardy

Rethink existing narratives concerning post-war photography and its legacies in this day-long event.
Known for his work on the seminal British publication Picture Post, Bert Hardy is a pivotal figure in British photography. We will examine the formal qualities of Hardy’s photographs and the material conditions in which they were produced, reflecting, too, on discussions surrounding photojournalism to expand contemporary debates related to image-making today.
Key themes include ethics of social documentary practices; image circulation and the printed image; and broader questions on representation and methodologies in photojournalism.
With support from the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art.
