Brian Griffin Lecture: Survival and the creative photographer
22nd March, London
Creativity and financial reward don't always go hand-in-hand but renowned photographer, Brian Griffin, has
found out how to survive financially and make the work he wants.
On the 22nd March he'll be explaining how he's achieved this at a lecture organised by London Independent Photography (LIP).
Brian is widely acknowledged as one of Britain's most influential photographers. “In 2001 I decided that Iwould never take photographs again purely for money, and would find ways to survive purely on my creativity. Since adopting that philosophy I have managed to keep going - just!"
Brian is famous for his groundbreaking approach to portraiture and numerous high profile projects
stretching from ‘Work’ in the 1980′s, to his current project charting ‘The Road to 2012′, commissioned by the
National Portrait Gallery.
“This talk is a fantastic opportunity to hear first-hand how an internationally recognised photographer has
managed to develop their creative vision - and pay the bills,” says LIP’s Chairman, Adrian Capps. “Brian has
been at the top for many, many years and we're delighted that this inspirational photographer has agreed to
share his insights and experience with us.”
Brian's talk is part of an annual programme of lectures held in honour of LIP co-founder, Janet Hall. Previous
Janet Hall Memorial lecturers have been Simon Norfolk, Martin Parr and Paul Hill.
London Independent Photography is a community based organisation of amateur and professional
photographers with over 600 members.
