Architectural Photography Now roundtable

Architectural Photography Now showcases the work and ideas of an international selection of accomplished photographers under the age of 45. It aims to highlight the variety of approaches that are possible in architectural photography, particularly in relation to both commissioned and ‘personal’ work.

Join us for this roundtable of internationally accomplished photographers as they share individual presentations on their work.

Presentations will be followed by a topical panel discussion, highlighting the variety of approaches that are possible in architectural photography, particularly in relation to both commissioned and ‘personal’ work, chaired by Dr Annalisa Sonzogni.

This session is part of our programming for the RIBA Photo Festival 2023.
