Tonight sees the first in a series of eleven Miniclick photography events taking place as part of Brighton Photo Fringe 2012. Very Own Studio is proud to be sponsoring the talks.
The Miniclick Photography Talks are a series of monthly, free photography and film-making events based in Brighton. Under the curatorship of Jim Stephenson, they have been running for two years and have become an important fixture on the Brighton photographic scene, with monthly events very well attended and special one-off events happening outside of Brighton, including a panel discussion at Somerset House during Sony’s 2012 World Photo London event.
Previous speakers include Ewen Spencer, Peter Dench, Jonathan Worth, Maja Daniels, Leo Maguire, Laura Pannack, Ben Roberts, Chris Floyd, Jason Larkin, Harry Hardie, Bruno Ceschel, Murray Ballard and Luca Sage. The talks also work regularly with Pecha Kucha, Hungry Eye Magazine, Portrait Salon and Photo Book Show to put on special events.
