POSTED: 05 December 2023

Guest of honour at Paris Photo 2023 Deborah Willis presents Picturing Us: The Power of the Gaze, considering how black women and non-binary artists have told their stories through photography

Here you can watch this year's guest of honour conversation, featuring the eminent artist, curator and historian Deborah Willis in conversation with Autograph's Director, Professor Mark Sealy.

 You can also watch the second event featuring artists Sunil Gupta and Joy Gregory, exploring Autograph's involvement in the movement for black photography since its foundation 35 years ago here.
