The February London Photographers’ Branch meeting discussion on Tuesday 26 February will be discussing working in collectives. We are please to have three speakers, Zarina Holmes, Ross Domoney and a speaker from Reel News is still to be confirmed.
Zarina Holmes is a freelance photographer, art director and co-founder of Sojournposse visual journalism collective, which is the producer of storytelling labs at the London Design Festival. Sojournposse’s reportage is described as a conversation between the collective, who are from the East and the West.
Ross Domoney is a freelance filmmaker and photographer in the Aletheia Photos collective. He is currently based in Athens, Greece. His documentary work focuses on social/human rights issues, modernization, character studies and the effects of political protest on cities, authorities and underground movements.
Reel News is a activist video collective, set up to publicise and share information on inspirational global campaigns and struggles.
We will also be celebrating International Women’s Day 2013 with free T-shirts designed by Zarina Holmes. It’s first come, first served. We will have a photo booth at the back of the meeting room and the photos will be posted online for the 102nd International Women’s Day.
As well as all that there will be the usual union business, updates on industry news that affects our sector and a report on the court hearing of the latest struggle to halt police seizure of journalist material. There will be nibbles and soft drinks.
