Join Colin Tennant, established documentary and art photographer, to explore the important role Photography has played in achieving equality in our history, and how equality campaigns and movements also shaped photography – as a way of documenting the history and as a discipline of fine art. An unmissable opportunity to look at and discuss historically significant examples of work in this field, as well as have a sneaky peek of Colin’s work in progress for the first lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans* (LGBT) history project in Cumbria.

Colin has been appointed as the photographer for CELEBRATE, recording the lives and memories of LGBT people in Cumbria through his lenses. A graduate from Glasgow School of Art, Colin has exhibited work in galleries in the UK and abroad, including the Centre for Contemporary Arts in Glasgow, Getty Images Gallery in London and Exit Art in New York. He also spent time in Aberdeenshire and Dumfries & Galloway, working with local communities and documenting their working and family lives.
