Photo|Frome – David Lassman & Mick Yates ‘Let’s Talk About Alice’ Talk

July 11 @ 19:30 - 21:00

£10
Man - Alice Seeley

This event will discuss the work of Alice Seeley, later Lady Harris. This is in collaboration with Frome Heritage Museum, who are currently featuring her in their ‘Celebrated Women of Frome‘ exhibition; Seeley having lived in the town for many years. This pioneering photographer shocked the world in the early 1900s with her images of human rights abuses in the Belgian Congo, which led to King Leopold’s withdrawal, though her enduring legacy is not without controversy.

David Lassman is Curator of the ‘Celebrated Women of Frome‘ Exhibition at the Frome Heritage Museum. Mick Yates is Chair and Curator of Photo|Frome and Visiting Professor, University of Leeds, Interdisciplinary Ethics Applied.

WARNING: THIS EVENT CONTAINS IMAGES WHICH SOME MAY FIND DISTURBING.
