To coincide with the bicentenary of the birth of Julia Margaret Cameron, The Royal Photographic Society in partnership with the National Media Museum and the University of Westminster presents a day of lectures that celebrate women in photography from both sides of the lens.
The talks reflect on the historical and contemporary contribution made by women to photography. We will be discussing their work from the perspective of the photographer, asking how and if gender makes a difference to the way women work, and considering the influence it may have on their subjects.
