Visit to Britain in Focus opening night at the Media museum Bradford

Last Thursday 16 march 2017

I was invited to the Representation of Photography on Television  talk and exhibition opening at the National media Museum Bradford

Britain in Focus: A Photographic History, created in partnership with BBC Four, explores the changing ways we make, view and share photographs

here’s a link to the official web page

go have a look   http://www.nationalmediamuseum.org.uk/planavisit/exhibitions/britain-in-focus-a-photographic-history/about

See photographers John Bulmer and Eamonn McCabe in conversation”

love that bit 😉 saw em and heard them too great to hear about how they went about the Television show ,and an interesting discussion among the great and good who were also there to speak

spoiled slightly by a bit of feminism trying to hi jack the discussion .. there should have been more female photographers etc… fair point but there wasn’t that many female photographers about in those days ..that’s just the way things were historically.Things have changed and hopefully someone might do a whole program on female photographers  Julia Margaret Cameron was one of the few female photographers in the Exhibition  and to be fair she was there on merit not as a token female go have a look at her work if you are not familiar with it  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Julia_Margaret_Cameron
