A Photographer's Adventure Round the Wheel of the Year

Since 2006 photographer Sara Hannant has documented folk rites of the seasonal year, spending time talking to people and photographing events as they unfold. Tonight she tells what she has learnt: what is the state of folk custom today, and how do those involved feel about the rites they keep alive. She also reflects on her own experiences of witnessing the wheel of the year in this way, sharing with us her favourite shots from her own work -- and pulling out of the archives some amazing monochrome photographs from the distant past, when ceremonies were first recorded. A visual and personal smorgasbord is promised; join us! Sara is author of Mummers, Maypoles and Milkmaids, and will be signing copies after the lecture.
