Visiting Guest Lecture: Benoit Grimbert (Photographer)

Paris based photographer Benoit Grimbert will be presenting his work to students 

at Barking & Dagenham College on Tuesday 7th February 2012, 3-5PM.

Non-students are welcome to attend by booking through the department. Admission free.

The photographer’s work shown here documents the landscape of cities and small towns of Normandy that were reconstructed after the bombings of WWII.
The color photographs were reproduced on one-sided coated paper to evoke a collection of photo prints and/or large postcards while the essay and historical photographs were printed in black on uncoated paper.
