To coincide with Women in Photography: A History of British Trailblazers at The Lightbox, there is an exhibition tour and panel discussion with Anna Fox and our group's honorary chair, Karen Knorr HonFRPS, chaired by Jean Wainwright. Anna Fox and Karen Knorr are Professors of Photography and Jean Wainwright is Professor of Contemporary Art and Photography at University for the Creative Arts (UCA), Farnham.

The panel will discuss the significance of uncovering hidden histories and of revealing new role models for women photographers. They will also explore what it is to be a female photographer today and why we need to re-evaluate our burgeoning photography histories and ensure that the women are recorded alongside their male counterparts. 

The event is organised by The Lightbox in collaboration with Fast Forward Women in Photography at UCA. It is a free event but you need to pre-book directly through the gallery here

The exhibition continues until 2 June 2019.
