15 November 2018 – 18:00 – 20:00

The Photojournalism Hub opens one of its programmes dedicated to promoting, engaging and disseminating photojournalism with a talk event to reflect and explore what are the existing challenges that those committed to expose  social justice issues face in the current climate.

“Photojournalism is more important than ever”

Have you ever heard the phrase “a picture is worth a thousand words”?

My name is Cinzia D’Ambrosi, a freelance photojournalist who has captured the plight of refugees across Europe through my lens. I have witnessed and documented human tragedy; something we see on the news every day. Back in 1984, Kenyan cameraman Mohammed Amin’s powerful images shown across the World from Ethiopia prompted Bob Geldof to create Band Aid which raised millions for the Ethiopian famine relief. Just one example of how images can say more than words.

The Photojournalism Hub aims to raise the profile of photojournalism and become a showcase for stories through images that prompt social change. Activities will include workshops for aspiring photojournalists and, exhibitions and talks from experienced practitioners.

I would like to invite you to the launch of the Photojournalism Hub where we will be explaining a little more about our objectives and provide you with an opportunity to get involved.   Free tickets are here. although limited in number.

Speakers include:

Andy Slaughter, Labour MP –  will formally  welcome the Photojournalism Hub and speak to its significance as an addition to the local community.

Daniel Renwick– videographer and journalist presents ‘Failed by the State’

‘Failed By The State’ was made four months after the fire at Grenfell Tower. It sought to historicise the mood for community self-help and reliance, after the government – local and national – failed the people in North Kensington, both for allowing Grenfell to happen, and failing to provide the requisite services after the fire. The film was narrated by prominent community member Ish, who was born in Grenfell Tower.

David Hoffman – Photojournalist

David has worked as an independent photojournalist since the 1970s. Often raw and uncomfortable, Hoffman’s work is both dispassionate documentary and steely social challenge. Working to document the reality of injustice, the frequent oppression of the state and the all too often tragic consequences, Hoffman’s photography has underpinned legal challenges, brought racist perpetrators to justice, and most importantly, reached wide audiences through newspaper publication for more than 40 years.
