This Week... Paul Halliday, sociology and photography lecturer at Goldsmiths College.
A photographic artist, film-maker and urbanist, Paul originally trained at the London College of Communications and Central Saint Martins Art School. He went on to study social anthropology, art history and archaeology at Goldsmiths, and the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge. He was formerly a media adviser at the British Refugee Council and has been the course leader of the international MA in Photography and Urban Cultures at Goldsmiths since 2002. He is also a director of London’s Photofusion, convener of the International Urban Photography Summer School and creative director of Urban Photo Fest working in partnership with Tate Britain and the International Association of Visual Urbanists.
Paul first visited us back in 2017, when he showed us images from his project Close to Nowhere which were taken in cities around the world.

We're very much looking forward to seeing more of his images and hearing Paul's fascinating view on photography.
