Speakers’ corner – online photography talks for spring

We’re excited to be bringing Out There back to OP, starting from issue 267 (on sale 22 April). Dedicated to new photography books and media, exhibitions, events, talks and more, we try to pack as much into this section as we can.

In the meantime, here are a few dates for your diary this spring – you can enjoy these online talks and presentations from the comfort of your home.
