This 2 day conference at Goldsmiths, University of London, brought together international photographers, artists and academics researching the city. The speakers reflect an interdisciplinary range of photographic, theoretical and research areas, and through six panels explore the nature of past and contemporary photographic approaches to the representation and evocation of city life. The theme of 'the encounter' is explored, not only in the way photographers experience the city, but also through discursive encounters between urban social science and visual practice. There is an associated exhibition, photographic workshop and curated urban walks programme co-ordinated by Photofusion and the Centre for Urban and Community Research (CUCR).
