From the same people that organise the fantastic residential photographic immersion workshops in Devon (of which there are still the last few places available for this Summer's round starting on 24th June), The Hinterlands present a touring series of talks and discussion surrounding this years workshop leader, Brenda Ann Kenneally of the USA and Netherlands-based photographer Robert Knoth, coming to Bristol on Thursday 12th July.
The talks will provide an deeper insight into the work of these two photographers, their perspectives, motives and their practice over the past two decades, which questions and celebrates the role of love in the face of pressing and desperate socio-political issues including effects of the trade of Heroin from Afghanistan and how the current economic climate is accelerating social change and poverty throughout Europe and the rest of the world.
Signed copies of Knoth's work Poppy and Kenneally's out of print Money-Power-Respect will be available to purchase and plenty of time for discussion throughout the evening.
