We launched our Through the Viewfinder interviews in 2020 to support the photographic community during what was a particularly challenging time. The live series aims to be a continuous resource that sheds light on the many different aspects of the photography industry which we hope will help you expand your own photographic practice. Hosted on Instagram Live via the World Photography Organisation Instagram account the talks are around 30 mins long and include a Q&A session at the end of each interview. We will update you on future interviews and similiar live, interactive sessions in the near future.
