Four Corners are delighted to announce the Another Eye conference, celebrating the contribution of women refugee photographers who came to Britain after 1933. Presentations will cover these photographers’ work across portraiture, reportage, social documentary and architectural photography, and how the European cultural approaches that they brought with them informed British visual culture. In particular the conference will consider how their experiences both as outsiders and as women shaped their practice.
