Paul Sanders’ talk is titled “Still”
Photography has been my salvation and solace from the noise of the world. This presentation looks at why we photograph things and the reasons we are drawn to notice certain subjects above others. I prefer to work simply and silently, photography is a time of reflection, almost meditation and personal space. The subjects I choose to photograph are those that call out to me, they are not always traditional and don’t always follow the rules, I am guided by my connection and emotion response to each subject, choosing to accept what is offered rather than wish or strive for perfection, which in my opinion does not exist.
This presentation starts with a look at my previous role as a news photographer and as Picture Editor of The Times, I give insight to the benefits of photography to mental health, personal development and the challenges of choosing your own path rather than the accepted norm.
I feature over 100 images from my collection, hopefully you will enjoy the evening.
