2015 JTPA Photography Lecture

We are delighted to announce that this year’s Photography Lecture will be delivered by Hellen van Meene in association with Scottish Society for the History of Photography SSHoP. It will take place in the Hawthornden Lecture Theatre at the National Galleries of Scotland, in Edinburgh at 6.00pm on Thursday 5th November.

Hellen van Meene will also lead the Masterclass for winners and shortlisted candidates at the Royal Society of Edinburgh on Friday 6th November.


Hellen van Meene is a Dutch photographic artist whose work has been exhibited frequently and internationally. She is represented in numerous collections and publications and has released several monographs.

Her subject matter is mainly (but not exclusively) portraits of adolescents, made internationally, and with remarkable intimacy, honesty and psychological tension.

A major retrospective of her work will be published by ‘Aperture’ in June of this year.
