Conference: The Business of War Photography
31 July to 1 August 2014

Proposals are invited for the forthcoming conference The Business of War Photography: Producing and Consuming Images of Conflict, presented in association with the Centre for Arts and Visual Culture at Durham
University, in partnership with DLI Museum and Durham Art Gallery and Impressions Gallery.

This in-depth two day conference will examine the ways in which issues of supply and demand have shaped the field of war photography. The event is held to coincide with Impressions Gallery' s touring exhibition The Home Front by Melanie Friend at DLI Museum and Art Gallery.

We are now inviting proposals from speakers to present papers that address war photography as the result of pragmatic transactions concerning business, militarism and consumption.
