Arabella Plouviez

Prof. Arabella Plouviez is Head of Photography at the University of Sunderland. She has worked with colleagues to develop the International Photography Research Network (IPRN) which was developed in 2004. Its mission is to stimulate the production and presentation of high quality photographic practice, academic and artistic research and photographic-theory. IPRN seeks to achieve this by providing a platform for international exchange leading to collaborative projects, exhibition, publications, research, symposia, networking and shared archives. In 2009 the North East Photography Network (NEPN) was launched, which offers a range of activities and opportunities for people based in the North East and involved with critically engaged photography.
