Gil Pasternak delivers a talk and participates in a panel discussion at the AA School, London

On 18 February 2019, Gil Pasternak contributed to the AA School’s public event “Slow Seeing: The Analog in Photography”, which was organised as part of the AA Collections Talks series. Gil delivered the presentation “Film Photography in a Digital World”, in which he explored some political factors that have affected the growing interest in film photography, since the end of the Cold War in particular. Gil also contributed to a lively discussion about photographic digitisation and the challenges facing archivists when intending to turn material photographic objects into digital images without losing their material characteristics, which are equally as important as the images they depict. The event was chaired by AA Head of Photography Sue Barr, and other speakers and panelists were Daniel Blochwitz (independent curator and artistic director of Photo Basel), renowned photographer John Spinks, and Programme Director for Sotheby’s Institute of Art MA course in Contemporary Art Juliet Hacking.
