Cass hosts in conversation event for Association of Photographers (AOP).
Date: 8 April 2019
Leading photographers Jillian Edelstein and Clare Park will be in conversation with Zelda Cheatle at an event hosted by The Cass on the 29 April at 6pm. The event, which follows a successful lecture by Simon Norfolk earlier in the year forms part of the Association of Photographers (AOP)‘s fiftieth birthday celebrations.
The award-winning photographers both chronicle personal narratives of family, displacement and loss alongside their work as portraitists. When selecting the images for the AOPs 50th birthday celebration exhibition, AOP50 at One Canada Square, curator Zelda Cheatle chose Jillian’s portrait of Nelson Mandela and Clare’s self-portrait The Beauty Myth as iconic photographs from the past 50 years. Continuing with these celebrations Jillian and Clare have agreed to take part this series of talks by AOP photographers.
Zelda Cheatle explore with Jillian and Clare how early societal experiences, career choices and personal inspirations have defined their individual vision and how their methodologies connecting life and work have fascinating similarities, yet striking differences.
Both women are represented in the National Portrait Gallery, the V&A, RPS and Incite Project permanent collections. Jillian was included in the Hundred Heroines RPS list December 2018 and both are currently part of the 209 Women exhibition.
Tickets are £8 AOP members, £15 non-members and free to student members (limited availability), and can be booked here. Students of London Metropolitan University can attend free but places are limited– please contact James Cant, Course Leader for BA Photography for instructions.
