LIP Shoreditch November Talks

December 2, 2010
LIP Shoreditch Talk at Red Lion

On the last night of November 2010 four members of the Shoreditch LIP Satellite Group gave slide-show talks about their latest work.

About 20 of us gathered in the warm upstairs room of the Red Lion pub in Hoxton Square, page as the snow swirled outside.

First up was Tiffany Jones, view who also edits fLIP magazine. She showed work from New York, recipe London, India and Ukraine. Tiffany talked about the evolution of her work through several projects. Some of my favourite photos were portraits of vegetable sellers in India.

Steve Richmond showed work from London, Syria and a recent trip to North Korea. This last series of photos is featured in the latest issue of fLIP and I’d really enjoyed reading about Steve’s visit a few days before. Some of the photos Steve made were shot on old Kodachrome, and my favourite is this candid portrait of a tour guide.

I then showed work from my Family Project. It documents the lives of 20 families in six countries. I selected two families to talk about – the Vogelgesang’s from Charlottesville, Virginia and my friend Kenny who lives in the Highlands.

Finally, Craig Stevenson showed a series of photos he’d taken covering the Debutantes Ball. He was following in the footsteps of Henri Cartier Bresson who photographed the event in the 50’s.

We’re looking forward to seeing work by other members of the group next year!
