Join us for a discussion and debate on collecting architectural photography, the role of photography in architecture, and the future of this medium in the current digital age.
This study day session is part of our programming for the RIBA Photo Festival 2023.
This RIBA Photo Festival study day session will be led by an international selection of invited speakers including both prominent specialists in the field and emerging scholars.
This session will include a panel discussion on collecting architectural photography, followed by individual presentations.
