Description

Tom Stoddart - “Every Picture Tells A Story”

Come and listen to one of worlds most respected photojournalists talk about his 49 years in the industry. This will be an exciting and fascinating insight into a career that began when Fleet Street was still at its height, through his coverage of many of the worlds’ major wars, disasters and political events through to his current work much closer to home in the North East.

About Tom:

Tom Stoddart began his photographic career on a local newspaper in his native North-East of England. In 1978 he moved to London to work as a staff photographer in Fleet Street and later freelanced for publications such as the Sunday Times and Time Magazine.

During a long and varied career he has witnessed such international events as the war in Lebanon, the fall of the Berlin Wall, the election of President Nelson Mandela, the bloody siege of Sarajevo, the wars against Saddam Hussein in Iraq.

In 1997 Tony Blair gave Stoddart exclusive behind the scenes access to his election campaign as the Labour Party swept to victory after 18 years of Conservative government in the United Kingdom.

Over the years Tom has worked with charities and NGO’s such as Medecins Sans Frontieres, Oxfam, Christian Aid, Care International and Sightsavers. His extensive work on the catastrophic AIDS pandemic blighting Africa has been widely published and exhibited.

His photography has been honoured with awards from World Press Photo, Visa pour l’image, Pictures Of The Year and the Eddie Adams Workshop. In 2006 he was awarded an Honorary Fellowship by the Royal Photographic Society.

In 2012 his ‘Perspectives’ retrospective outdoor exhibition was displayed at London’s South Bank and attracted 225,000 visitors.

Now established as one of the worlds most respected photojournalists, Stoddart is represented by, and works closely with Getty Reportage, to produce powerful photo-essays on the serious world issues of our time.
