Millennium Images and Panos Pictures are proud to announce their inaugural talks series over the coming months. These exciting new talks under the auspices of Milim Community, a non-profit ‘community interest company’, will explore ways that photography professionals are addressing diversity and inclusion issues.
The online zoom talks are free and everyone is welcome. Tickets must be obtained through Eventbrite. The talks are all on alternate Thursdays, starting on September 16 at 5.00pm UK time.
Milim Community was started by Millennium Images in order to explore different ways people use photography throughout the world, and how we can be more connected with each other, with the help of technology. Part of our remit is to look at the way colonialism and photography have interacted.
Some of the photography professionals taking part in the talks will include:
Mehta’s work has regularly engaged in different ways with cultural identity, through images presented in ‘REVIVAL, LONDON 1989-1993’ and his other books and projects such as ‘DISTANT RELATIONS’ and ‘COASTLINE’. He is drawn to seeing how photography can offer us an opportunity to reflect on our common histories and celebrate our respective identities. His work explores how different cultures and identities touch, engage and interweave.
Tomlinson was born in Brighton and studied photography at Central St. Martins. Her recent projects ‘Ex-Voto’ and ‘Lost Summer’ have been exhibited internationally and published as books. She is the recipient of numerous awards including the Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize (1st place, 2020) and Sony World Photographer of the Year 2018 (overall winner).
