Jamie Hawkesworth in Conversation with Emily Ryalls


Join us this Wednesday as British photographer Jamie Hawkesworth speaks to Emily Ryalls about his influential career spanning documentary, fashion, and editorial work. They will also discuss the value of analogue printing and community darkrooms, and their current relevance to a contemporary audience. This will be followed by a Q&A in which all attendees will be given the opportunity to expand on questions they may have.

Jamie Hawkesworth's work explores the relationships between people and their surroundings. Jamie has grown to be recognised as one of today’s greatest image-makers, creating work for the New York Times, Vogue and Alexander McQueen. Beloved for an ability to inject warmth into seemingly any subject matter, his most recently released work is The British Isles acts as a photographic survey of the UK.

Emily Ryalls is a photographer working predominantly with the intersection of photography and performance. She is the founder of The Merrie Collective and is currently working with The Art House to develop a new community darkroom in Wakefield, with a special interest in supporting the growth of a socially engaged photography network in the area.

The talk is in celebration of Jamie’s new book, The British Isles, published by MACK.
