The seminar accompanies this photography education project which involved commissioning three photographers to take portraits of GPs in their Bristol, London and Brighton surgeries.

The seminar will discuss the commissioned portraits within the wider landscape of medical portraiture and the field of medical humanities.

Speakers are drawn from across the project and will include Dr Jacques Mizan (director of Space Works at King's College, London), Phil Johnson (editor of Pulse) and

Helen James (project manager of 'Portrait of a GP').

'Portrait of a GP' is a collaboration between Pulse and the National Portrait Gallery and is funded by the Healing Environment Research Cluster Project ­ an EPSRC/ AHRC Designing for the 21st Century initiative.

Alongside our project to produce fine-art photography in three GP settings, we are interested in your views on the effect of art and architecture on you and your patients. Please take a few minutes to complete this online questionnaire and you could win

a Canon Powershot 52IS.
