Directly influenced by the central theme of the Gallery’s upcoming exhibition Francesca Woodman and Julia Margaret Cameron: Portraits to Dream In, this lecture will look at the ways in which photography is used to transport a viewer beyond reality and into a dream space. 

Where can photography take us? What can photography do? And how does photography offer an alternative to every-day life?

Lecturer to be announced.
