As part of the Shorelines programme at Estuary 2016, Nikolaj Bendix Skyum Larsen will be in conversation with Steven Bode, Director of FVU, to discuss Larsen's moving-image work Portrait of a River and accompanying publication of the same name.
Larsen's film presents a series of encounters which illuminate the histories, landscapes and stories lining the Thames as it winds and widens on its journey to sea. His accompanying book brings together stunning photography from the film, essays, interviews and overheard conversations. Together they portray a river whose physicality and use remains in constant and elusive flux.
Larsen's publication Portrait of a River is available in the FVU webshop here.
Portrait of a River was commissioned by FVU and Museum of London. Co-produced by FVU and The Cultureship. Supported by Arts Council England.
