Fran May started photography aged 19. Between 1974 and 1978, she travelled to over twenty destinations, shooting black and white film with one basic fixed-lens camera.
This month, Fran published a book of these same photographs. She will show her book. Accompanied by a powerpoint, Fran will talk about how she contextualised her life though photography. How Bill Brandt explained to her that time would change the perception of her images, over one life-time.
Fran will also talk about her experience of being a freelance photographer as a means to earning a living.
“No photography business ever evolved the way a bank manager expects it to. It is all synchronicity, bloodymindedness and entrepreneurialism, with a dose of art, to make it taste nice”.
