Snap! The Photographer and the Film

Photography in Film Talk

Sandy Guthrie | 2023 | 100 MINS
Focus on Film

As ‘All the Beauty and the Bloodshed,’ about photographer and activist Nan Goldin, screens this month, we look back at the ways in which her profession has been portrayed on screen.

In Detail

The art of the photographer, with still images rather than moving pictures, is a parallel but very different medium to the cinema. Whether portraying the news or capturing life in all its forms, photographers have long featured on the big screen.

Sometimes they are a useful eye for the filmmaker to build a plot around, and in other cases they are the fascinating subjects of documentaries trying to get to the heart of the picture and the talents of the photographers.

The new documentary ‘All the Beauty & the Bloodshed’ looks at the life and work of photographer Nan Goldin, and her fight against the Sackler family’s involvement in the opioid epidemic in the USA.
In this illustrated talk to accompany that film, Sandy Guthrie will put photographers from the big screen in the frame, with examples real and fictional, paparazzo and artist.
