My feature about the new Photography Oxford festival is now online.
How can charities move us to give when we are so used to seeing pictures of starving children? Are we more interested in recording experiences than living them? And in the end, what is the point of photography?
Organisers of a major international photography festival taking place in Oxford this autumn hope to explore all these questions and more with an ambitious programme of exhibitions, talks, debates, workshops, films and competitions. More than 100,000 visitors are expected to flock to the three-week Photography Oxford Festival to be challenged, moved and inspired by the ideas and artwork on display.
