David Spero – Structures and Environment: Two Photographic Projects

Lecture date: 2010-12-08

The Photographers’ Gallery @ the AA

In this lecture David Spero discusses themes relating to planning laws, structures, landscape and representation in two of his projects. ‘These are Churches’, which documents the contingent architecture of makeshift churches in London, and ‘Settlements’, which documents self-built structures within a number of land-based ecological communities based in Britain.

David Spero graduated from the Royal College of Art, MA Photography course in 1993 and has since worked on a number of interconnected bodies of work. His work Settlements was shown at The Photographers’ Gallery in 2006 and was included in How We Are: Photographing Britain at Tate Britain in 2007. He published Churches in 2007 with Steidl. Spero was the Photoworks fellow at the British School at Rome in 2009 and has an upcoming exhibition at The National Media Museum in Bradford in 2011.
