Photography Forum returns with Xav Beaumont’s lively images

Xav Beaumont’s photographic work will be the centre of discussion next week

After their first real break in almost five years, the Croydon Photography Forum is back next week with another photographer who will be sharing his visually diverse photographic journey.

March’s talk, a week tomorrow, on March 12, will be a talk entitled, Another Day – Another Life – The Photographic Journey of Xav Beaumont.

Xav Beaumont (also known as Fred Adams) is a licentiate of the Royal Photographic Society, he has held several exhibitions and has had his work featured on the cover of Time Out, in the prestigious Royal Photographic Society Journal, BBC History magazine and in numerous online publications.

His presentation will map an intriguing and often striking photographic evolution that incorporates multiple genres and techniques (Urban exploration, Landscapes, Cityscapes, Architecture and Long Exposure), showcasing a natural self-developed photographic skill that has evolved into the work of Fred’s street photography alter-ego Xav Beaumont, focusing on the candid documentation of the diversity of everyday London life.

Fred Adams will talk about his work at next week’s Photography Forum

This is a free event but donations are accepted to help offset the increasing costs associated with running the forum.

We will also be having a raffle for which tickets cost £2 each.

The Croydon Photography Forum starts at 6.45pm and is held at CVA Resource Centre, 82 London Road, CR0 2TB.

    Arresting images from Xav. I am also wondering if Inside Croydon’s Editor is also a photographer, as the photos that appear at the top of every Inside Croydon page are very good indeed!
