Creators:Williams, Val
Group or Collective Creators:Fotonow

An exhibition titled 'Cameras in the Community' concluded with the Cameras in the Community symposium, which presented an opportunity to explore and reflect upon the photographer’s response to engaging with communities and the role of the archive in contemporary photographic practice. Daniel Meadows, Val Williams, Pete James, The Caravan Gallery and Fotonow all featured to examine the theme, with a panel discussion chaired by David Chandler.

As a key figure in British photography Val Williams was invited along with others in the field to examine the role of the archive in contemporary photographic practice. The presentation/talk by Val Williams was one such contribution that helped position the recent work of FOTONOW's Camper Obscura from the perspective of community practice and archival projects.
