Meeting Point: The Crafty Egg on Stokes Croft

Saturday 28th September, 12:00pm - 4:00pm

£20


Starting in the heart of Bristol’s creative community in Stokes Croft, surrounded by Banksy works, coffee bars, and Bristol’s Bohemians, we will slowly meander towards the historic harbor via the iconic Christmas Steps, cobbled back alleys and bustling College Green. Bristol is always full of surprising people and extraordinary locations and you are guaranteed to find both on this street photography walk.  We’ll end the experience looking at the photographs we have taken on our walk over a nice cold Bristol cider (optional/not included).

The expert

She was awarded 4th in the Ian Parry Award in 2001 for the series of work that she made in America titled Baby Doll about child beauty pageants, one of the images from this series was also included in The Telegraph’s Travel Photographer of the year exhibition in 2004.

Work from a recent project has been part of the RPS Hundred Heroines (UN) Framing Identities exhibition in London and is now moving up to Blackpool for September.
