1854 Presents hosts free virtual artist talks, Q&As, panel discussions and more with leading figures in contemporary photography. In this free event, Teresa Eng and Kalpesh Lathigra discuss the medium as a means of exploring their identities as second generation diaspora.
Teresa Eng’s work explores the inevitability of change through personal histories. Her latest book, China Dream, was awarded the 2019 Burtynsky Grant and was a finalist for the 2019 Aperture Portfolio Prize, Images Vevey Book Award and Hyères 33e Festival of Fashion and Photography.
Previously a staff photographer at The Independent, Kalpesh Lathigra was awarded a 1st Arts prize from World Press Photo in 2000. His first photobook, Lost in the Wilderness, was listed as a Guardian photobook of the year in 2015.
