Alternative Camera Club, Saturday 16th October, 10.30am. £3
“From the series In A Foreign Field.” by Mishka Henner
This months Alternative Camera Club welcomes Mishka Henner,
Mishka Henner has worked on documentary projects with his partner Liz Lock across the North West since 2005. Using portraiture and landscape studies, they produced many stories exploring the post-industrial satellite towns of the north. In the last twelve months, Mishka has interrogated the nature of photography and his role within it in an age when everyone is either talking and writing about or actually taking pictures. The resulting works include Winning Mentality, Collected Portraits and Photography Is (described by Joachim Schmid as “the only book that really says what photography really is, unbiased, straight forward, comprehensive”). In this talk, Mishka will discuss these works in relation to his own documentary work. Mishka is represented by Panos Pictures and is a member of the ABC Artists’ Book Cooperative.
Once again bring along anything you have been working on for the informal critique and discussion after Mishka’s talk.
Hope to see you there…
In association with Manchester Photography
