INSPIRED: Liz Collins in conversation with Penny Martin



19:00 - 21:00

Doors open at 19:00 for refreshments, kindly provided by Will Sark beers. Talk begins promptly at 19:30 so make sure to arrive on time!

Paving the way for female photographers in the 90's - Liz Collins editorial career has led her to representing some of the world's leading brands such as Miu Miu, Dior, Givenchy and Calvin Klein. Working with the likes of Cara Delevingne, Laetitia Casta, Edie Campbell and other industry greats - Liz Collins has directed short films and created sensational commissioned films.

Whether shooting fashion or beauty, Liz Collins likes to inject mischief and emotion into her photographs and it is this sensibility that makes her work instantly recognisable. The images are part representational of the exposure to the music, youth culture and political unease that dominated the streets of the second city of Birmingham in the 1980’s, where Collins played out her dissident, culturally aware teens attending art school. Today, Liz enjoys a varied editorial career contributing to The Gentlewoman, Vogue, EXIT and Muizine. Her inherent inclusion and progressive attitude creates images that are compelling and storytelling.

Joined by writer, curator and Editor-in-Chief of The Gentlewoman Penny Martin, this candid talk will explore Collin's journey, the peaks, the downfalls and all that has made her the successful creative she is today.
