The Photography Foundation was created to provide pathways to professional photography for less advantaged young adults in London by offering education, practical experience, and routes to a career in the creative industries.
TPF TALKS is a platform that amplifies under-represented voices to encourage the next generation of photographers and creatives to be part of the conversation, build their networks, and create space for themselves in the industry.
Each month, we will amplify the voice of a different under-represented group and have:
- Photographers talking about their work and sharing their journey into photography, focusing on representation - followed by an audience Q&A!
- Networking with other photographers and creatives
- An opportunity to speak to current and past trainees about our Training Programme, and to find out how to register your interest if you’re considering applying
- A chance to look around our studio and space
- Drinks and table-tennis, because why not!
We want this to be a space for young people to ask questions, network, and support each other to grow in the industry.
The first instalment of 2022’s TPF TALKS will take place during January, a month that commemorates Holocaust Memorial Day. We will use this event to amplify the voices of Jewish photographers and people who document displacement, identity & conflict within their work.
We are delighted to have Judah Passow speaking at this event. Judah has been working on assignments for American & European magazines and newspapers since 1978. Based in London, his work has been published extensively by leading newspapers such as The Guardian, Die Zeit & The New York Times.
He is the winner of four World Press Photo awards for his coverage of conflict in the Middle East & his photographs have been exhibited widely throughout Europe & The United States. His book, Shattered Dreams, looking back at 25 years of his coverage of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, was published in 2008.
“Judah Passow has an extraordinary ability to distil complex situations into powerfully loaded images that are deceptively simple to look at. His signature black and white technique has cut-glass clarity and beauty with a sensual quality that seduces the viewer to engage with even the grimmest reality.” Steve Mayes.
This event is aimed at 18-25 year old's living in London from an underrepresented background.
