Why do some images end up hard news and others end up in galleries? Is there a divide between press and documentary photography, and if so is it widening? Are organisations such as World Press Photo actually awarding documentary photography rather than press these days? Debate these and many other questions on 31 January, when The Social returns to Soho.
This time we've invited documentary photographer Simon Norfolk and Elizabeth Orcutt, a picture editor The Times' news pages, to present two talks; after that it's over to you to discuss, debate and relax with other photographers at an informal social night.
The Social takes place from 6.30pm-8.30pm in the basement of Barrio Central, 06 Poland Street, Soho, London W1F 8PS. The night is run by The Photographers' Gallery and British Journal of Photography and takes place on the last Monday of every month.
