How relevant are NFTs to photographers and the industry?
In this webinar we are in conversation with our guest speakers to discuss NFTs (non-fungible tokens) in relation to photographers, image-makers and the photo industry. WIth such hype around NFTs, it can be hard to find out about them above all the noise, how relevant are they to what you’re doing, or even decide whether to get involved or not?

Jack Lowe is a documentarist using photography, audio recordings and film to make and share the story of The Lifeboat Station Project, his 10-year journey to all 238 RNLI lifeboat stations on the coast of the UK and Ireland. Jack photographs and interviews the lifeboat volunteers he meets along the way but there’s a twist! Travelling in his mobile darkroom — a decommissioned ambulance called Neena — Jack uses Victorian photographic techniques to hand-make the images on glass. Head to lifeboatstationproject.com to see hundreds of photographs made over the years and to find out how you can get behind the rest of his odyssey.
