World-famous photographer Holger Pooten provided an inspiring talk, and raffle prizes, at the latest Croydon Photography Forum this week.
Pooten gave an engaging and informative presentation on his work, personal projects and inspirations. His fascination with transitional moments and destruction has led him to push the limits of digital photography, perception, and post-production to create surreal, ingenious and captivating photos.
A lecturer of photography and founder of the London Institute of Photography, Pooten also offered great tips and advice for emerging photographers.
The evening ended with a question and answer session, and the raffle draw for two prints which Pooten generously donated.
The next Croydon Photography Forum takes place on May 10 at the CVA Resource Centre on London Road. It will feature the photographer and arts facilitator Daniel Regan, who is dedicated to the investigation of mental health within photography.
Regan has worked with marginalised and vulnerable groups and charities and runs various workshops to encourage participants to express and empower themselves through photography.
