- Talk with Mike Seaborne
24 October 6:30 pm
To coincide with his exhibition at Foto8, Mike Seaborne will give an illustrated talk about his urban landscape work with particular reference to the exhibition London: Landscapes in Transition. This will be followed by a Q&A session a guided tour of the exhibition.
Mike Seaborne began photographing London in 1979 when he was appointed Curator of Photographs at the Museum of London. Since then he has explored much of the capital and has completed many projects for the museum and independently. In 1986 he began a long-term landscape project recording deindustrialisation, changing patterns of land use and new city infrastructures. He has concentrated on using medium and large-format cameras to reveal the minutiae of his subjects and, while embracing digital technology, his finished work retains obvious links with that of earlier practitioners whose aim was to assemble visual collections of aspects of the city that might soon be lost or have simply been overlooked or forgotten.
