JHB Gallery is pleased to announce that Ellen Carey will be presenting a keynote lecture for the Royal Photographic Society at PHOTO LONDON on Friday 17 May, and on Monday 20 May at the Royal Photographic Society in Bristol.

Carey's Back To the Future: The Avant-Garde Is an Address lecture will contextualize photography as a visual art and game-changer at the forefront of the avant-garde. In her own words: "abstraction in photography and lens-based art presents a contradiction in terms, and minimalism presents a further oxymoron. It is here, in the early stages of modern and contemporary art with its roots in photography, that my work has a context."
