At the end of last year, AUB hosted a discussion panel around Paul Wenham-Clarke’s exhibition, the Dark Highway. Last month, the MA Commercial Photography course team organised a seminar day on contemporary documentary portraiture at The Photographers’ Gallery. 

The day brought together students from a wide variety of universities as well as industry practitioners to discuss methods and motivations in the documentary field.

You can take a look at the videos from both days below.

AUB also hosted a discussion panel around Paul Wenham Clarke’s exhibition, the Dark Highway, at the University in November 2014. You can watch this here:
