Space Framed Week 11

Next week, we will be joined by The Interior Prospect for a discussion on European photography, focusing on in particular, the 'Dusseldorf School of Photography'.

We will be looking at the following photographers in detail:
- Bernd & Hilla Becher - Luke & Su
- Andreas Gursky - Orla & Stefan
- Thomas Struth - Brian & Caroline

In each case, we will be examining how the image works as a photograph and  related ideas about reality, objectivity and the role of a photograph as a cultural record.
