On Old Father Thames with Julia Fullerton-Batten

  • Multiple dates

What you will learn at this event.

We head #behindthescenes with world-renowned #photographer Julia Fullerton-Batten to hear more about her project 'Old Father Thames'. The creation of #OldFatherThames has spanned across several years, exploring and recreating #historic events that took place across a multitude of locations along the #riverthames in #london. Julia walks us through her process as she re-creates a moment in time. The River Thames is not even the longest river in the British Isles and a mere pygmy in comparison with many other rivers in the world, yet its significance to British and world history is immense. The river starts as a small trickle in the hills to the north west of London, and travels for nearly 450km through the south of England, the centre of London and thence out into the North Sea via the Thames Estuary, meandering its way through some of England’s most picturesque towns and villages. Julia's latest artwork depicts a time where hospitals overflowed with patients, and St Guy's Hospital were forced to treat patients along the river to accommodate the high-numbers; a situation not to dissimilar to the recent Covid pandemic. #howto#streetphotography#documentary
