Christina Stohn, one of our launch Photograds, will be a part of the Bank Street Arts hosted symposium New Pastoral Paradigms: Explorations in Landscape and the Self, in Sheffield on the 23rd July (this Saturday!). In accordance with the residency taken up by Jesse Alexander, the symposium focuses on the consideration of “how contemporary landscape practice has shifted from its pastoral traditions to embrace more nuanced, personal approaches”, as stated on Bank Street Arts website. Christina will be discussing her projects Paradise Lost and Sehnsucht, alongside other guest speakers including Jesse Alexander, Hanna-Katrina Jędrosz and John Umney. This sounds like a brilliant opportunity for anyone interested in landscape photography...or any other photography for that matter!
Christina has kindly agreed to share her experiences of speaking at the symposium with us, and we’ll be posting her write up here on the blog!
