This conference explores seaside photography in its very broadest sense and provides an exciting critical space for debate and enquiry: the seaside as boundary between different environments; its location in contemporary photographic practice; seaside photography in an historical context, including class, gender issues and youth; the vernacular; the demotic; regeneration and the rise of leisure as captured in seaside imagery etc.
Day 1 takes place at the Sidney Cooper Gallery.
Day 2 takes place at Turner Contemporary, Margate.
Transportation will be provided for all speakers and delegates.
