Courtesy of The Globetrotters Club, John will be giving a talk about his Sub-Saharan journeys this Saturday 14th April, 2.30pm at The Church of Scotland, behind the Fortune Theatre in Covent Garden. Entrance £6 per non member.
Since 2006 his focus has been on Sub-Saharan Africa, highlighting the pivotal role that traditional communities play in humanity’s survival in places where the earth’s resources are minimal. His work emphasizes the positive role that Africa and Africans play in the 21st Century and also highlights the threats to traditional ways of life today. John’s work has been exhibited worldwide through international art shows and has been featured in The Times of London, The Telegraph, and the international art and photography press.
John actively supports organisations that work within traditional African communities and has been a guest on BBC Radio and at the London International Documentary Festival. Last year John donated works in support of Survival international, Concern Worldwide, and his work was auctioned at Sotheby’s New York in aid of ‘Art for Africa’. John has been visiting tribes across the African continent for six years as part of an ongoing photography project and will be talking through his most memorable experiences across West, East and Southern Africa. The talk will be accompanied by a slideshow featuring some of the remarkable people that he has met on this journey, and why these people and their communities matter to him in the 21st Century.
