As a Guardian photojournalist between 1974 and 1996, Denis Thorpe was well placed to record a period of upheaval in the British political and cultural landscape. From reportage of the miners’ strike and Strangeways riot to celebrity portraiture and travelogues, he captured the essence of the age. Author of ‘A Long Exposure’ 100 years of Guardian Photography in Manchester.
We’ve had the privilege of hearing Denis before and this quote from member Ray Troll sums up what we can expect again.
“Thank you for organising the talk last night!
The Denis Thorpe talk was without any doubt the best BIPP talk I have ever attended. Such a diminutive and quiet man who produced imagery that spoke loud to the world without the need for words. I left the event feeling inspired by the fantastic imagery I had seen, but also by the quiet enthusiasm which is still very much a part of Denis Thorpe”
This will be a very special night and a rare chance to get a first hand insight into some iconic images.
