English Journey Book Launch and Conversation with John Angerson
20/09/2019 - 6pm
To coincide with the launch of his latest book ‘English Journey’, Village & Miniclick are proud to host John Angerson in conversation.
In the eighty-five years since J. B. Priestley made his English journey, England has changed on a mammoth scale. Priestley was walking through a country that still depended on agriculture and heavy industry; a country ravaged by poverty but yet to be ravaged by the Luftwaffe and the post-war planners. And yet, for all the differences between 1934 and 2018 England, there’s a great similarity between J. B. Priestley and photographer John Angerson – they both set out to report England as it really is, and was, in those years.
Talk will be 30 minutes long and take place at 7pm
