‘Looking for Alice’

Following the success of its 2015 series, The Guernsey Photography Festival is launching a second series of photographers' talks.

The talks will feature acclaimed international photographers and will form part of the Festival's ongoing cultural and educational programme. The Festival is also collaborating for the first time with the Digital Greenhouse in Guernsey and the Jersey Arts Centre to enable the photographers to speak in both islands.

The programme opens on Wednesday 25 May in Guernsey and Thursday 26 May in Jersey with Sian Davey, whose work about her down-syndrome daughter 'Looking for Alice', won widespread critical acclaim last year.

The other photographers scheduled to talk are: Jack Latham on Wednesday 6 July in Guernsey and Thursday 7 July in Jersey who will present his work 'The Sugar Paper Theories' which traces an infamous true crime case in Iceland which involved the testimonies of six people who confessed to two murders they had no apparent memory of. 

On Wednesday 12 October in Guernsey and Thursday 13 October in Jersey, Guillaume Bresson will talk about 'Fukushima No-Go Zone', an ongoing collaborative project with Venezuelan photographer Carlos Ayesta about the aftermath of the 2011 earthquake and tsunami in Japan.

Finally, on Wednesday 23 November in Guernsey and Thursday 24 November in Jersey, Norwegian photographer Helge Skodvin will discuss his acclaimed project 'A Moveable Beast'. Skodvin has won numerous awards in the Norwegian press picture of the year awards, and also in the Norwegian advertising picture of the year. He was shortlisted for the 2015 Leica Oskar Barnack Award.
