This week we are fortunate to have another talented photographer join us at The Croydon Photography Forum to share a little about their photographic practice.
Ioana is a self-taught photographer born in Transylvania (Romania) and uses photography as a visual diary. Now based in East London, her work focuses on street and documentary genres, exploring the notion of home – particularly in trying to understand what makes a country welcoming, and what it means to belong. After becoming a winner in Portrait of Britain 2019, she began exploring portraiture more. One of the resulting projects is Isle of Dogs, due for release as a zine under Duck Sale Press imminently.
We have always made this event free in order to ensure that it is accessible to everyone from across the globe that would like to join us. However, in addition to the free ticket, we also offer a category of ticket which allows for the making of a voluntary. This is for those people that would like to support covering the costs associated with running Lenses of Croydon and our regular events.
This week anyone who donates £3 will be entered a prize draw to win a hand-printed photo by Ioana. However, if you donate £5 you will receive 2 entries.

We look forward to welcoming you on Tuesday!!!!
