Stills: Centre for Photography

Book now

Free, but ticketed.

This 4 part lecture series will explore how the biggest online streaming shows influence our photography and our minds! Wednesdays, 6-9pm 20 Nov – 11 Dec 2019

Wednesday, 20 Nov 2019 6-9pm

Each of the four sessions in our Netflix and Stills series (come on, its funny!)(note, some are actually on amazon…) will see theoretical ideas paired up with photographic approaches and techniques used in the series being discussed that week, giving you the chance to discuss the fine and not so fine points of some of the culture we spend most time appreciating right now…

In Week 1 we will discuss The Walking Dead… why did it start out so well and how is it so terrible now?! Why can zombies see but not speak? And how come the apocalypse is so beautiful? To have your say on these and other questions raised by the murmur of the undead come along on the 20th of November.

No prior reading is required for this course, but some interest in photography, philosophy and culture is advised.

It is recommended that you watch one or two episodes of each of the series before attending, just so you have a flavour or what is being discussed. We do not take any responsibility for you getting hooked!

Delivered by Stills’ Research Associate and Tutor David Grinly.
