2017 JTPA Lecture and Masterclass

This year the lecturer and masterclass will be delivered by Pradip Malde

Having taught at Napier University in Edinburgh, Pradip now teaches at the University of the South, Sewanee, Tennessee. Much of his work considers the experience of loss and how it serves as a catalyst for regeneration. He is currently working in rural communities in Haiti, Tanzania and Tennessee, designing models for community development through photography.

He was responsible with Mike Ware, for reformulating and reintroducing platinum/paladium printing in the late 1980s.

Works are held in the collections of Museum of the Art Institute, Chicago; Princeton University Museum; Victoria & Albert Museum, London, Yale University Museum and the Scottish National Portrait Gallery, Edinburgh, among others.

Malde will talk about some of the overarching themes in his photographic work. Spanning over thirty years, and moving from still life to portraiture to documentary approaches, he has considered very personal realms of experience against broader social and political grounds. His work has always been entwined with his work as an educator, and the lecture will also consider the matter of education and photography.

Entry to the Lecture, which will be held in the Hawthornden Theatre, at the National Galleries. Princes Street Edinburgh on Thursday 2nd November at 6pm, is free on a first come first served basis.

The JTPA winners and commended entrants will be invited to the Masterclass which will be held at Stills Gallery, Cockburn Street, Edinburgh at 10am on Friday 3rd November along with others by application up to a maximum of circa 15 participants.
