The fields of photography and sociology seem to be enjoying a growing awareness of the ways in which they can both enrich and strengthen one other. This is typified by the wide range of events that are appearing within the academic and arts landscape, events which are bringing together practitioners from diverse backgrounds but with a shared interest in exploring and representing the changing world around them.

One such event is the upcoming Uncanny Landscapes, organised by organised by researchers from Royal Holloway, University of London, and supported by Landscape Surgery (RHUL) and the Centre for Creative Collaboration.
