Photo|Frome – Robin Ravilious ‘A Chronicle of Rural Life’ Talk

June 24 @ 19:30 - 21:00

£10
James Ravilious - Man with dog

Robin Ravilious will talk about her late husband James Ravilious, the internationally renowned black and white photographer who spent over 17 years in rural North Devon recording in intimate and affectionate detail the land, its people, their work, and their everyday lives. James started this work in 1972; more than 70,000 images later, his Beaford Archive work had become what the Royal Photographic Society called ‘a unique body of work, unparalleled at least in this country for its scale and quality‘.

Robin will discuss James’s life (he died in 1999), his dedicated approach to his work, and the many influences that inspired him (including Henri Cartier-Bresson). She will also provide unique background notes to some of James’s best photos.

Anyone with an interest in the history and photography of the south west should not miss this festival-opening event.
