Brian Griffin is widely acknowledged as one of the most influential British image-makers of recent times. He is famous for his groundbreaking approach to portraiture and numerous high profile projects stretching from 'Work' in the 1980's to his project charting 'The Road to 2012', commissioned by the National Portrait Gallery.

His most recent project ‘Spud’ inspired by a residency in Béthune-Bruay in Northern France, marking the centenary of the end of World War I. In 2009, Brian Griffin became the patron of FORMAT Festival and in 2013 he received the Centenary Medal from the Royal Photographic Society in recognition of a lifetime achievement in photography. Gostbooks have just published ‘POP’ a comprehensive retrospective of his music photography of Brian Griffin shot for album covers, single sleeves, posters and press.

Brian will talk about how he approaches his projects focusing on his most recent ‘Spud’.
