This event at the Bluecoat sees The Reader Organisation’s Amanda Brown chair a discussion responding to Edmund Clark’s photographs within the Confined exhibition – part of Liverpool’s Look 11 photography festival.
“Edmund Clark’s photographs of Guantanamo illustrate three views of ‘home’ in the context of political imprisonment.” Ed Clark and Amanda will be joined by Erwin James, who used to write for the Guardian from within prison whilst serving a twenty year sentence. He will give details about his own incarceration whilst offering his own interpretations of Clark’s work.
The theme of this year’s festival is ‘Call to Action’, encouraging people who may not consider photography a hobby to try it out, a philosophy very similar to our own with regards to reading literature.
The event takes place TOMORROW, 2 June at 7:30pm. Entry is free but tickets are required. To contact the Bluecoat call 0151 702 5324.
