Join the London Alternative Photography Collective at Photofusion, for a talk by Lynda Laird and a recent project shot on infrared film. The images were taken in and around the coastal bunkers along the Atlantic wall from Utah beach to Deauville.

Talk: Joanna Zylinska: Pictures from the End of the World: Nonhuman Photography

Jerwood Space

Monday 05th February: 19.00 – 20.00

Admission: Free

Today, in the age of CCTV, drone media, and satellite imaging, photography is increasingly decoupled from human agency and human vision. It can also literally see the end of the world. The notion of ‘nonhuman photography’ proposed by Joanna Zylinska, will expand the human-centric idea of photography to embrace imaging practices from which the human is absent: from the contemporary high-tech examples provided by traffic control cameras, space photography, and Google Earth, through to deep-time impression-making processes such as fossilisation.
