Dr. Patrizia di Bello, Lecturer in History and Theory of Photography, is taking part in a symposium on Pictorialism in Berlin this November (2013)

Pictorialism may be considered one of the most multifaceted chapters in the history of photography. Internationally networked and in dialogue with painting, ambitious amateurs emerged on the scene in the 1880s with the goal of gaining recognition for photography as art.

The symposium will examine anew the Pictorialist movement from today's perspective with the Kunstbibliothek's Juhl Collection as its starting point. Renowned historians of photography and museum curators have been invited to discuss Pictorialism as the first internationally networked art photography movement. (The conference will be held in English.)

Dr. di Bello’s paper is on ‘Rough Surfaces: Pictorialist Photographs of Sculptures’

Patrizia teaches on the BA History of Art, the MA History of Art, and is the Course Director of the MA History of Art with Photography. She is also on the steering group for Birkbeck’s History and Theory of Photography Research Centre.
