Valérie Belin: Prix Pictet Conversations on Photography, Whitechapel Gallery, London

About

5 November 2015

7pm

Zilkha Auditorium

Ahead of the announcement of the winner of the sixth cycle of the Prix Pictet on 12 November, shortlisted artist Valérie Belin is joined in conversation by Paul Wombell, an independent curator and writer on photography.

Pushing the boundaries of conventional, realist photography, Belin exploits the possibilities of digital manipulation, creating work that hovers between reality and illusion. In this talk, the French photographer discusses her work, exploring her fascination with artifice and the significance of appearance in her often unnerving, surreal images.
