Another fantastic Association of Photographers' event with Jillian Edelstein and Clare Park in conversation with Zelda Cheatle.
The Sir John Cass School of Art, Architecture and Design (The Cass) is pleased to be hosting this Association of Photographers' (AOP) event with award winning photographers Jillian Edelstein and Clare Park in Conversation with Zelda Cheatle.
Jillian Edelstein and Clare Park both chronicle personal narratives of family, displacement and loss alongside their work as portraitists.
When selecting the images for their 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 we are pleased to announce that Jillian and Clare have agreed to share this series of talks by AOP photographers.
Zelda Cheatle will 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 also included in the Hundred Heroines RPS list December 2018 and both are currently part of the 209 Women exhibition.
Tickets are free to students from The Cass.
