Finding Vivian Maier Screening – London

Firecracker: Women and Wit in Photography
With a special screening of ‘Finding Vivian Maier’
Part of the PARC Moose on the Loose Research season

5 May 2015 1.00pm – 5.30pm
Main Lecture Theatre, London College of Communication, London SE1

Photography is sparkling with the work and wit of the women who create and shape it, but the path has been never straightforward.

Join us for a viewing of the essential documentary Finding Vivian Maier, the story of an extraordinary photographic talent that remained invisible for too long. Questions of conformity, identity, self-portraiture, wit, art and ownership will be discussed by Fiona Rogers in conversation with Brigitte Lardinois, senior research fellow at LCC, who was instrumental in the women’s photography movement in the 1990s.

Presentations by outstanding contemporary practitioners will follow, including Alma Haser, Natasha Caruana and Alma Haser, Natasha Caruana, whose exhibition opens at PARC the same night – Firecracker attendees are invited.
