November Branch Meeting – The Art of War

3rd November, 2011

The London Photographers’ Branch are proud to host a debate with award winning photographers Simon Norfolk and  Territorial Army Sgt Alison Baskerville about propaganda, embedding, censorship, objectivity and art – The Art of War.

Simon’s widely recognised work has spanned from UK fascist groups to some of the worst war zones and refugee camps in the world. In the last ten years his work has focused on the meaning of the word “battlefield”.

Alison recently switched a 13-year career in the military to become a freelance photographer. Having scooped several awards with her previous work Alison has also recently returned from Afghanistan trip embedded with the riflemen in Helmand.

The debate will be at 6pm, on Tuesday 29 November at NUJ Headland House, 308 Gray’s Inn Road, London, WC1X 8DP. Entry will be on a first come first served basis and seats are limited.

    As a Member of the Press & PR Branch with a special interest in Defence and with a member of my family who has and will be serving in Afghanistan I am particularly interested in attending this event. I hope that I will be able to get a seat.

    I only just found out about this event… I wonder whether any recordings were made and whether any transcriptions or video / audio of the debate will be put online at some point? It would be of great interest to me and, I’m sure, many others.
