Life is never dull in the world of Jim Holmes.
Working in the aftermath of an earthquake, spending 5 years documenting the construction of a hydroelectric dam on the Mekong River or being assigned to the tropical island of Bali for a month can never become just another job.
Dangerous, complicated, demanding, surreal and, especially in my work for organisations such as Oxfam and Save the Children, humbling, I can take you to places you may never want to go…. From the serious to the absurd, my career has been a journey of exploration and adventure through which and perhaps despite, I still had to be productive!
This presentation will walk you through the good times and bad, the successes and the failures illustrated by a rich tapestry of images bringing together the best of his photographic career.
Jim is a fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and a professional documentary photographer that specialises in worldwide humanitarian and environmental assignments from his base in Chester. Before this UK existence he lived-in South-East Asia for 20 years, in Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia and has travelled in over 50 countries.
Jim’s talks are unique, entertaining, and informative, bringing together the best of his photographic career and the experiences his assignments have brought, all from some of the world’s most fascinating locations.
The cost of a place is £5.00 and can be booked via Eventbrite.
