Talk on ‘Shooting War’
Meeting on Wednesday 20 March 2019 at 7:00pm
Haven Arms, Havenside, HU12 8HH
We are delighted to welcome Nigel Walker to Hedon Viewfinders, who will give us his talk on ‘Shooting War’ first given at Beverley Art Gallery last year.
Nigel looks at the impact photography has had on our understanding of and attitudes to war. From the earliest days photography has been seen as an aid to armies, although photographers are now sometimes viewed as enemies of governments seeking to prosecute wars. This talk will look at four wars, four war photographers and four individual pictures that have been significant in the history of recording war. Nigel warns that some of the images shown will contain scenes of war and death and could be distressing for some.
Note: A collection will be taken at this meeting to cover costs.
