On Wednesday January 20th the Anglo Chilean Society hosted the first of a series of virtual events for 2021. The webinar began with a screening of the documentary ‘Creative Destruction’ The short film was made by Francisco Ibañez, a young Chilean living in the UK who is a Chevening Scholar, architect, urban planner and photographer who specialises in urban regeneration.
The film was a fascinating personal view of London’s regeneration, historic preservation and modern architecture. After the film Luke O’Donovan an architectural photographer and creative producer hosted a discussion with Francisco alongside imagery of his architectural photographs as well as works by famous photographers in particular from the Dusseldorf school. The discussions looked at the future of urban centers in the light of Covid, climate change and new technologies as well as the role of photography as a research and documentation tool.
There was a good turnout for the event with some excellent feedback.
