Sunday 4th December 15:00 - 17:00.
The Hobart Room, Assembly House, Theatre Street, Norwich. NR2 1RQ.
Take a break from your Christmas shopping to remember the true meaning of Christmas; love and compassion within your community.
Join us as we hear from the hugely inspirational and award winning local photographer, Jim Mortram, as he talks about his social documentary photo series; Small Town Inertia.
In this seminar, Jim will be focusing on the social implications behind this series, the importance in documentary photography and how it gives a voice to those who have no opportunity or means to fight back against stereotypes and misreprestations in both life, and their communities.
He'll also touch upon his new book, and the moving stories of the individuals featured in his photographs.
About Jim Mortram
Jim is a carer in his family home in Dereham, where he looks after his mother who suffers from chronic epilepsy. This upbringing has influenced Jim, and surviving on the fringe of society where empathy and patience was essential to keep going has given him a unique perspective on many elements of life.
He uses photography as a medium to give a voice to those who suffer from judgement, particularly the disabled and those with less financial security.
Typically in his work, Jim focuses less on technique and fancy equipment, but more on social documentary, and how photography can illuminate the beauty and truth in areas that are often overlooked.
"Be the change you wish to see, illuminate, enable, empower the truths that surround, document, listen, listen and share. Live in love, empathy, and compassion" - J A Mortram.
