Photo Cafe is an informal discussion and meeting place, an event that invites speakers and participants to discuss ideas, debate topics around contemporary photography issues and network with others.

Dr Alasdair Foster, Leverhulme Visiting Professor from Melbourne and Ambassador to the Asia-Pacific PhotoForum, is one of the most original, provocative and inspiring thinkers in photography. We are delighted to welcome him to Manchester during a brief visit to the UK for a keynote lecture that sets the scene for the next National Photography Symposium later in 2018 on The Future of Work in Photography.
