Myself and video journalist Jason N. Parkinson are honoured to have been asked to speak about our joint work at the 12th Oxford Human Rights Arts Festival this year.

We will be showing film and photographs, with Q&A at the Ultimate Picture Palace  –

Tickets are available to book here for The Life and Work of a Video/Photojournalist on Wednesday 26th February 2014 6-8pm

Exhibition – Ethnic Cleansing

I have also been commissioned by the Oxford Human Rights Arts Festival to exhibit photographs about the persecution of gypsies and travellers, an issue that I have documented for 20 years.  The exhibition will run throughout the festival 24-28th February at the Old Fire Station.

The featured image is one from the exhibition – Police and bailiffs evict travellers and their supporters from Dale Farm, Basildon. Essex. © Jess Hurd/reportdigital.co.uk

 

Gypsy Wedding Protest C4

Gypsies and travellers protest outside Channel 4 about the adverts publicising the Big Fat Gypsy Weddings documentary. They argue that the posters stigmatise, insult, degrade and stereotype the travelling community. A letter of complaint was delivered to C4 management. Organised by the London Gypsy and Traveller Unit. Westminster, London.
