Conferences - SHIFTS


‘Shifts’ held in Jyvaskyla, Finland in 2006 focussed on the changing nature of representation of identity in documentary practice and of the photographic archive, including national and regional archives as well as the family album. 
The speakers at this event included: international photographer Roger F Ballen who spoke specifically about his ‘Shadow Chambers’ project; Anthony Haughey who discussed his project ‘Disputed Territories’; and Pedro Mayer who explored the authenticity of the documentary image in the digital age.

A conference proceedings publication was produced ‘Shifts: Archives in Dialogue and New Identities in Documentarism,’ ISBN: 951-97304-5-1.
