Is seeing really believing?

Alison Jackson, BAFTA and multi award-winning artist, photographer and filmmaker talks about how in today's world, so saturated by different types of media, we can’t distinguish between the real and the fake anymore.

In this talk, Alison proposes that the very nature of photography created this social phenomena.

Come along and let her take you on a journey through her hilarious, provocative and topical imagery, and hear her explain the narrative of her work and why we can’t seem to get enough of the scenes of celebrities' lifestyles.

About the speaker:

Alison Jackson is a multi award winning artist who explores the cult of celebrity , that extraordinary phenomenon created by the media,  publicity industries and the public figures themselves.  

Alison's work sits squarely in the middle of the current fake news, alternative facts or news debates. She raises questions about whether we can believe what we see when we live in a mediated world of screens, imagery and internet. She comments on our voyeurism, on the power and seductive nature of imagery, and on our need to believe.

Alison has made extensive portraits of actors, celebrities, and public figures (real ones!) and is building her collection for the National Portrait Gallery. Actors and celebrities include: Eddie Redmayne, Benedict Cumberbatch, Rosamund Pike, Gillian Anderson, Ralph Fiennes, Charles Dance and many well-known politicians.
