Join Tristan Lund, curator of the Photo London Discovery Section, as he speaks with artists Janet Delaney, Jo Dennis and Thomas Kuijpers to discuss their artistic and working practices. The talk will include conversations on how these artists promote their work and fund their projects whilst still retaining their own artistic identity, as well as a discussion about photography as image and object – something key to these artists’ work.

Tristan Lund is an art consultant and curator specialising in photography. He is the curator of The Incite Project as well as curator of the Photo London Discovery section.

Janet Delaney is an American photographer, who is best known for her series, South of Market, which she began in 1978 when she moved to the South of Market neighbourhood of San Francisco, an area undergoing transition due to gentrification and urban renewal.

Jo Dennis is a British artist whose practice explores people and place by documenting worn and well-used spaces.

Thomas Kuijper is a visual artist who investigates how image and text are used to create a narrative.
