Photo|Frome had a two-day Symposium on this year’s theme ‘Decolonising Environments’, which explored the complex and often conflicting relationships between human communities, places, and the natural world. Encompassing a range of styles, subjects and genres, Photo|Frome invited photographers and our audience to contribute to discussions around the social and environmental impacts of longstanding political, cultural, and economic ideas about our world. 

Here are some videos of the talks.
