Time: 19:00 to - 21:00
Join us to hear Photographer James Smith discuss his recent project publication, London Overspill, with publisher Nicholas Smith.
London Overspill (2008-2014) brings together a collection of James Smith's photographs investigating the post-war built landscape, concentrating on the architecture of Basildon, Bletchley, Corby, Harlow, Hatfield, Hemel Hempstead, Luton, Milton Keynes, Northampton, Peterborough and Stevenage. An oeuvre that spans the best part of a decade, Smith challenges our perception of the landscape as a permanent physical presence. Written responses to the work have been made by Owen Hatherley, Matthew Shaul and Eugenie Shinkle; touching on the architectural, social and political aspects of London Overspill.
