Guest Room aims to spark collaborations. That’s why Mariama Attah is teaming up with Daniel C. Blight in choosing the theme for this instalment. Daniel is a writer based in London. He works on various forms of the essay, fiction and poetry, and has written for 1000 Words, Aperture, Foam, frieze, The Guardian, Vogue Italia and more. His first book is entitled “The Image of Whiteness: Contemporary Photography and Racialization”. He is Lecturer (Assistant Professor), Historical & Critical Studies in Photography, School of Media, University of Brighton. The framework for submissions is:
“Bodies of Knowledge“
This pulls together their shared areas of interest of representation, empathy and overlooked communities, but can extend to how we come to “know” photography/images, and also calls for new types of knowledge to be created with respect to different ways of looking and seeing.
