I have had a terrible June and then my lovely, very old grandpa died. The funeral is on 11 July and I haven’t been able to keep up to date with the blog. As you know, I curate and maintain this blog in my own time, independently, so it has to fit and shift around life’s happenings. I also have to keep working as I am freelance and it has taken its toll on my output last month. I think I’m nearly back on track but there are some outstanding things to add to the blog. I didn’t get to the Arles photo festival in France this year either, due to June’s events but also because I have to conserve, time, energy and money.
So, even though the month of the Guernsey Photo Festival is over, here is the penultimate post, one more to follow later in the week. These photos cover some of the local photographers and events engaging with the community such as The Caravan Gallery run by the lovely Jan Williams and Chris Teasdale, who were calling for locals to let them know about anything “Interesting, Bizarre, Special or Unique to photograph” in Guernsey, as well as the work of Guernsey photographers David Evans, Rob King and Peter Neville and who were also asked to explore the topic Identity.
