Jan 14th ’14 – (P)Review of the Year

What a year 2013 was for photography. Lots of ups and downs (more ups, in our eyes), lots of things to be excited about and every reason to look forward to 2014. On Tuesday January 14th (7pm) we’re hosting a panel discussion reviewing the best (and worst) of 2013 and looking at what we can be excited about in 2014 in the photography world.

Tuesday January 14th. Doors at 6pm, panel discussion starts at 7pm. Free Entry at The Old Market, Brighton & Hove.

Architecture and Interior Photography by Jim Stephenson

As with all the Miniclick events, the audience are invited to join in the discussion. The panel will consist of some fantastic people…

Christiane Monarchi

Christiane Monarchi is the founding editor of Photomonitor, the online magazine for photography and lens-based media in the UK and Ireland. She previously helped create the contemporary photography programme at James Hyman Gallery (London), writes on photography, organises artist talks and symposia and lectures on the art market.


Antonio Olmos

Antonio Zazueta Olmos has worked extensively in the Americas, Africa and the Middle East for various editorial publications and NGO’s, winning the World Press Photo award for People in the News in 2001. In this most recent project, which is also his first book “The Landscape of Murder”, Antonio has worked within the borders of London to document every location where murder has been committed between January 1st 2011 and December 31st 2012, a harrowing count of over 200 sites. With the aim of giving a memory to what are mostly forgotten events and capturing the scarred, silent, largely unseen landscapes where great violence has occurred, “The Landscape of Murder” paints an alternative unsettling portrait of London.


Helen Trompeteler

Helen Trompeteler is Assistant Curator of Photographs at the National Portrait Gallery, London, where she has contributed research to major exhibitions including Man Ray Portraits (NPG, 2013) and curated a diverse range of displays, both historical and contemporary, including Fred Daniels: Cinema Portraits (NPG, 2013), Spotlight on Peter Rand (NPG, 2012), Mick Jagger: Young in the 60s (NPG, 2011), From Where I Stand: Photographs by Mary McCartney (NPG, 2010) and Jane Bown: Exposures (NPG, 2009). She has previously been a judge for exhibitions with the Association of Photographers and London Independent Photography. Recent writing includes an illustrated chronology of Man Ray’s life and career for the catalogue Man Ray Portraits (2013).


Eleanor MacNair

Eleanor Macnair’s first job was as photo-production assistant at fashion advertising agency Toth Brand Imaging, New York before returning to the UK where she spent four years at the Michael Hoppen Gallery in Chelsea. She joined the National Portrait Gallery in 2008 and worked on the Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize for four years, and major exhibitions such as Irving Penn Portraits, Camille Silvy: Photographer of Modern Life and Hoppe: Society, Studio and Street. Last year she moved to Media Space at the Science Museum to launch the venue before moving to White Cube.
