The Art of Documentary Photography in Devon – a symposium in celebration of the work of James Ravilious and Chris Chapman
2022 marks 50 years since both James Ravilious and Chris Chapman started their careers as documentary photographers in Devon. Chris Chapman took his first photographs on Dartmoor in the summer of 1972 and still lives and works on the moor today. In the autumn of that same year James Ravilious began work as resident photographer at the Beaford Centre. He lived and worked in rural North Devon until his death in 1999.
This symposium will celebrate the impact that the work of both these master photographers has had over the past 50 years and continues to have to this day. It will also address issues relating to the future of documentary photography in Devon and beyond.
Organised by Beaford in association with the Ravilious/Chapman 50th Anniversary Group
