"Photographic Journey Through Mongolia"
Seeing Mongolia And China Through The Eyes of A Photographer.
Friday, 20th of February

A facsinating lecture, designed to enhance the skillset of professional and amateaur photographers alike, as well as avid travel lovers. This will be an in-depth look into “Behind the Scenes” of a major documentary project in the heart of Asia.

In this lecture Asher will share his personal experiences, methods of action, and different ways of thinking, which he utilizes in the course of his work. This Process has enabled him to intimately document the various cultures he has encountered, such as the Mongolian Camel Herders of the Gobi Desert and the Kazakh Eagle Hunters of the far west. More importantly, this process has been key in successfully sharing the stories of these cultures through the lense of a camera.
Lastly, Asher will show how a series of events (during a journey he did in Asia in 2013) changed the way he thought and felt about the art of story-telling, photography, and travelling. He will also address the many difficulties and relations which shaped him personally and professionally in a manner resulting in the culmination of his efforts as his first ever photo-project : "The Future Generation of Eagle Hunters" - A project that introduced mongolia's first eagle huntress to the world in over a thousand years.

Tickets: £14.00 (or £25.00 for both talks) start at 7.30pm
