Desert Island Images is a series of conversations with guests with a story to tell and a passionate relationship to the world of images. Join us as Chris Nineham shares his Desert Island Images.
What are the images that stay with you? The most inspiring or haunting. The images you can see if you close your eyes and just remember, or dream. Which would you take to that mythical desert island?

Desert Island Images is a series of conversations with invited guests who have a story to tell and a passionate relationship to the world of images. Hosted by the Barbican Library, each event explores the handful of images they find most powerful, inspiring, comforting, haunting or generally indispensable. Encompassing photographs, paintings, drawings, graphics, illustrations, films, TV, maps, diagrams and more, Desert Island Images is an invitation to take the pulse of our image saturated world via a unique personal and critical perspective.
