The Croydon Photography Forum’s (CPF) goal is to expose our attendees to various photographers who share different elements of their practice with the group. Our next meeting is no different. We’re pleased to be hosting Sukhy Hullait, a portrait and documentary photographer based in London.
Sukhy work involves making long-form photostories about marginalised people, often inspired by social and political issues. His work spans several genres and is informed by respect and understanding of the craft of image-making. He is colourblind, self-taught and leads street portraiture workshops across the UK.
He is an experienced workshop facilitator who is keen on investing in others and giving back to the community, be that a photographic community or any other. For this reason, we are turning the CPF on its head, and Sukhy will be leading a session that will be a lot different to our usual Tuesday evening talk entitled, the Photographers Handbook to Surviving the Pandemic
In these strange times as creatives, it’s essential to recharge our artistic batteries and consider how photography can be used as a mechanism for growth, inquiry, and support not just for ourselves but also for others around us. Whether we engage with people through a viewfinder, a zoom meeting, Twitter, or through a window, anyone who uses a camera can capture or share stories and inspire, encourage, and uplift.
While any size donation is welcomed, donations of £3 will entitle you to an entry into the evening’s prize draw, and a donation of £5 will give you 2 prize draw entries.
