13th February 2018 - Ken Scott

In February 2017, Ken Scott set out on a highly-ambitious plan to walk solo around the coast of Britain. In this lecture, Ken will present not only a visual record of our country’s coastline; he will tell the story of a challenging physical and emotional journey, full of anecdotes and reminiscences from the past. And of course it will feature Ken’s unique style of presentation and photography – mixing landscapes and light, people, abstract art and everyday observations. Ken has nearly forty years’ experience as a photographer. He is a professional speaker and photography coach as well as a lifetime adventurer whose photography journey began in the mountains.

Please visit Ken's website for more information about our special guest.

Ken’s walk was in aid of Parkinson’s UK and RNLI, for whose benefit there will be a collection at this event. Winchester Photographic Society will also be making a donation to the charities.

Tickets are available for non-members in advance only at £7.50 per person.

13th March 2018 - Stuart Franklin

Award-winning photographer Stuart Franklin will explore how we, as humans, are driven to visually document our experiences and the world around us.
Stuart Franklin took one of the most powerful photographs of the 20th century - the 'tank man' in Tiananmen Square, Beijing, 1989. From his insightful position as a photographer, Franklin explores why we are driven to visually document our experiences and the world around us. He focuses on photography but traces this universal need through art, literature and science.
Looking at photojournalism, war photography and work recording our culture, Franklin identifies some of its driving impulses: curiosity, outrage, reform and ritual; the search for evidence, for beauty, for therapy; and the immortalisation of memory. As our understanding of 'documentary' continues to expand, Franklin considers photographic staging - where, perhaps, the future of the genre may lie: in search of truth over fact.

Please visit Stuart's website for more information about our special guest.

Tickets are available for non-members in advance only at £5 per person (members) & £10 per person (non-members).Please note that this is a ticketed event for members as well as non-members. Tickets are also available at the Society Desk on a Tuesday evening.
