Renowned portrait photographer Brian Griffin will be giving this year's Janet Hall Memorial Lecture.

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 current project charting 'The Road to 2012', commissioned by the National Portrait Gallery.

Brian's lecture on 'Survival and the Creative Photographer' will be an invaluable event for photographers developing their own practice.

As Brian explains, "In 2001 I decided that I would never take photographs again purely for money, and would find ways to survive purely on my creativity. Since adopting that philosophy I have managed to keep going, just! This talk will show and explain how I have managed it."

The Janet Hall Memorial Lecture is one of the highlights of the LIP event calendar. Previous lecturers have been Simon Norfolk, Martin Parr and Paul Hill.
