Our intended speaker this Thursday, Jo Teasdale FRPS, is unwell and has had to cancel.
Fortunately, Programme Manager Glyn has persuaded Kieran Doherty to step in at the last minute. Kieran is a hugely experienced photojournalist who worked for many years for the Reuters News Agency, covering stories worldwide, such as the Iraq War, the Asian tsunami and Northern Ireland’s Troubles. Subsequently, his freelance projects have focused on human resilience, ranging from life in Wootton Bassett during the repatriation of Service personnel from Afghanistan, to tennis fans at Wimbledon. The former was acquired by the Imperial War Museum and the latter took first place in the World Press Photo awards in 2015. His most recent work ‘A Corona Diary’ was recognised in ‘Pictures of the Year’ in 2022.
The meeting will be held at Tangmere as usual. We considered changing to Zoom because of the cold weather but Kieran “loathes” presenting that way!
