Anthony Palmer is a photographer and educator.
I work as a photography tutor for adult education and community centres and lead group walks that use photography to explore and explain the city. I am an architecture guide and lead walking tours for the Royal Institute of British Architects and photowalks for the Barbican Members' events programme. I am currently studying with Open City and the Golden Key Academy
In 2013, I completed the MA in Photography and Urban Cultures at Goldsmiths in London. Research interests include the role of the image in architecture, urban regeneration and housing. I host the monthly group meetings of Crossing Lines which is a satellite group of London Independent Photography. I interview photographers for the Centre for Urban and Community Research podcast Street Signs .
Until 2012, I worked with the Olympic Delivery Authority managing the filming and photography of the London 2012 park and before that worked extensively across communications and media production, having started a career as a trainee studio manager at BBC Radio.
