Talk

Details

T.S. Eliot once wrote that the point of any journey is to find out where you came from. This urge to document one’s homeland and enquire into a collective identity is powerful. In this vein, much of Simon Roberts’ photographic practice has been based on journeys around Britain – where he lives – and further afield, photographing events and landscapes where people are drawn together in public, reflecting on the nature of our shared histories and communal experiences.

As Vice President of Visuals and Immersive Experiences at National Geographic, Whitney Johnson has spent much of her career collaborating with some of the world’s best photographers commissioning assignments that tap into important social, economic, and scientific aspects issues.

Together they will discuss some of Simon’s major photographic series, including Green Lungs of the City, a project which National Geographic instigated.
