Photo Café: talks on photography is a conversation series with photo industry professionals in an effort to grow and educate our community while challenging the status quo. We cover topics ranging from analog photography, education, getting your work seen, and opportunity while also digging deeper to address the impact of systemic inequality. Photo Café is a community program open to everyone. We encourage our audience to ask questions, network, and join us in our conversations to create better industry standards for everyone. Photo Café is presented by Seeing Collective (SeeC) and co-hosted by BKC.
