PHOTO LIVE with Jesse Boyd-Reid and Lauren Dunn


PHOTO LIVE features artists premiering new projects that occupied public spaces during the Festival.


PHOTO LIVE is a series of artist conversations that took place throughout PHOTO 2021 addressing the social and cultural role photography plays in our lives. Curators, academics and practitioners discussed a range of issues from identity, community and belonging to human rights and social justice.

Recent VCA graduates Lauren Dunn and Jesse Boyd-Reid are joined in conversation with PHOTO Artistic Director, Elias Redstone. This discussion explores their socially engaged approaches to art making, and considers how place and identity inform the artists distinctly different practices. Centred around broader political and social issues, these visually disparate practices have threads of commonality.
