UWE Bristol Talks: Reportage and Documentary Drawing

Thursday 17 November 2016, 18:00 to 19:00

Gary Embury, senior lecturer BA (Hons) Illustration at UWE Bristol discusses Contemporary Reportage and Documentary drawing practice and its relevancy as a source of news reporting.

Reportage drawing is a valuable interpreter of contemporary events and offers a perspective different to the dramatic spectacles of photojournalism.

In the age of the digitally mediated image and 24 hour rolling news reporting, can reportage artists continue to contribute to our perceptions of social, political issues, war and conflict?
