Forms of Industry: Online architectural photoday

Join our online workshop for a day of photography, exploring changing attitudes towards mass production and sustainability through the contemporary photographs of Alastair Wiper and archival images of Eric de Mare. For ages 18+.

About the course

This workshop will run from 10am to 4pm, with a break for independent photography. For ages 18+.

This online architectural photoday is part of the London Festival of Architecture with RIBA, and will be incorporating themes of care.

Learn about the architecture of the "Functional Tradition" and how the exhibition’s photographers approached these monumental architectural forms. Be inspired, and interpret the functional world around you by making a set of photographs for group review. By the end of the day, you will have learned new ideas and practical skills for representing architecture through its image.

With guidance from architectural photographer Anthony Palmer, you will be given a toolkit of how to explore themes of care for the environment, architectural scale, and the industrial. We will have a break to enable independent photography in your local area and report back to share images with the group in the afternoon.

An introductory recording from the curators of the exhibition Forms of Industry, Justine Sambrook and Rodrigo Orrantia Gomez, will be sent to participants prior to the workshop. Rodrigo will join us on the day and there will be an opportunity to ask questions about the exhibition.
