Special issue looking at photographers who shoot moving image, and the relationship between the creative approaches.
The Bristol Photography Research Group, based at the University of the West of England (UWE), ran the Moving Stills symposium in April 2016, which explored the practices of photographers who also produce moving image work.
This special edition of their Photographic Dialogues journal uses that symposium as the starting point, and includes papers and conversations from the event, and includes additional articles and interviews with photographer-film-makers, and a section showcasing new and current projects.
The journal provides rare insights into the practices of photographers who make film, and discussed often neglected conversation about the relationship between still and moving image. It explores the benefits and challenges of working across these formats, at a time when more photographers than ever are expected to be skilled at both.
