Call for Papers: Building with Light: The Legacy of Robert Elwall An International Symposium on Architectural Photography
13-14 Nov 2014
Royal Institute of British Architects, 66 Portland Place, W1B 1AD, London
The RIBA announces an international symposium on architectural photography in conjunction with the first major retrospective of the British architectural photographer Edwin Smith (1912-1971), whose prolific work helped redefine the notion of post-WWII Britishness.
The symposium will honour the legacy of Robert Elwall (1953-2012), an acclaimed British historian of architectural photography and curator, since 1976, of the RIBA's Photographs Collection that now bears his name. With some million and a half architectural images, the Robert Elwall Photographs Collection is one of the most extensive resources for the study of the influence of photography on architecture and the creative process.
Interested participants are invited to submit a 300-word abstract, brief biography and a presentation title by no later than 31 July 2014 .
