LATEST EPISODE

In episode 61 UNP founder and curator Grant Scott is in his shed considering portrait photography, photographer's home's and the importance of taking risks and taking care. Plus this week photographer Paul Trevor takes on the challenge of supplying Grant with an audio file no longer than 5 minutes in length in which he answer’s the question ‘What Does Photography Mean to You?’ Paul Trevor is known for his photography in the UK’s inner-city neighbourhoods, particularly for images made in London and Liverpool since the 1970s. Since picking up the camera at the age of 25, Paul's photographs have been widely published in books, magazines, films and on television.  A storyteller at heart, photography offered tools which he embraced with enthusiasm. Abandoning his job as an accountant, he applied to picture-making the rapid hand-eye coordination he acquired as a teenage table tennis ace. Eager to collaborate with others, in 1973 he co-founded the Exit Photography Group whose joint projects over a decade produced two documentary books and various exhibitions.  In 1975 he helped set up the Half Moon Photography Workshop, an arts centre in London's East End where photography could be produced, exhibited, published and debated and co-edited its influential Camerawork magazine between 1976-80. Between 1973 and 2000 Paul worked on the Eastender Archive, an extensive project which offered a personal record of the changing community near his home in Brick Lane, East London. Several of these photographs were included in the London Street Photography exhibition, at the Museum of London in 2011. His work is motivated by a keen social impulse, and has been exhibited internationally as well as within the UK, including shows at The Photographers’ Gallery, London and Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool. His work is in public and private collections around the world including the Arts Council Collection, British Council and Victoria & Albert Museum. http://paultrevor.com Grant Scott is the founder/curator of United Nations of Photography, a Senior Lecturer and Subject Co-ordinator: Photography at Oxford Brookes University, Oxford, a working photographer, and the author of Professional Photography: The New Global Landscape Explained (Focal Press 2014) and The Essential Student Guide to Professional Photography (Focal Press 2015).
