On Saturday 20th January, Fotonow ran a guided photography walk exploring Plymouth in the afternoon, with the theme Document Your Community.
Emma Booth from Fotonow gave an introduction to the film Tish and talk about Fotonow’s socially engaged approach to photography.
“It was fantastic to be able to programme and collaborate on an event with Plymouth Arts Cinema, I was thrilled to see that they were showing a screening of Tish and designed the FOTOWALK event to revolve around social documentary photography in line with her work. It’s clear that Tish Murtha’s legacy goes far beyond the images themselves and it was great to use this as inspiration when roaming around Plymouth with the theme “Document Your Community”. With a fully booked event, it was great to see so much engagement on the walk and new connections being made. Some fantastic photos came out of the day, capturing the people, places and spirit of Plymouth.” – Emma Booth, Community Photographer, FOTONOW
