What is Photography in Virtual Culture? This podcast episode presents the main contributions from the two-day conference, Photography in Virtual Culture, which took place at the University of Westminster and The Photographers’ Gallery in May 2024. The podcast highlights the significant impact of contemporary technologies (such as AI, Mapping and CGI) on our understanding of virtual culture and reflects on how these technologies are shaping photography as an artistic practice and within industry today.  

In this podcast, you will listen to conference speakers share their views on the event, alongside contributions from conference convenors Prof. David Bate and Dr Paula Gortázar, and Arieh Frosh and Sam Mercer, producers of Unthinking Photography, part of The Photographers’ Gallery’s digital programme.  

This podcast was hosted, recorded and edited by CREAM PhD alumna Dr Verónica Posada Álvarez and produced by Lucy Rogers (Research Associate, CREAM).
