Derby Day:
The second of three major conferences on post-war British photography will be on 12th March 2005 in Derby, and will discuss photography in the 1980s. Q-arts is wrapping a mini-festival around this; Format 05. The latest issue of Source features a short report from the first conference; and an interesting fact is mentioned. That Stoke-on-Trent was one of the first three places, prior to 1978, to break with the purely technical approach to teaching photography and to also include documentary and aesthetic approaches.
