Britta Jaschinski – PHOTOGRAPHY – A Catalyst for Change
January 13 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm£5.00
Keyworth Camera Club are delighted and honoured to be hosting a talk by internationally acclaimed photographer Britta Jaschinski on Thursday 13th January 2022 at 7.30pm via Zoom.
Britta was born in Bremen, Germany and moved to the United Kingdom in the 1990s. Since then she has developed a prolific career in photojournalism.
Britta’s work has been recognised with awards in many of the top photography competitions and also the Magnum Photography Award. Her list of accolades is superb: she is a regular speaker on the European photo festival circuit and has featured on the jury of leading international photo competitions.
She is the only photographer to have received the grand title of European Wildlife Photographer of the Year twice and has been selected by the Royal Photographic Society in its prestigious Hundred Heroines list.
She follows the exploitation of animals in many forms from the international smuggling of animals as pets, to the way in which animals are illegally hunted around the world. Her investigative images can be hard hitting and yet they are hauntingly beautiful and always inspiring.
She is the co founder of the group Photographers against Wildlife Crime, together with editor and writer Keith Wilson. This group comprises an international selection of photographers who have joined forces to use their iconic images to help bring an end to the illegal wildlife trade in our lifetime.
Britta normally gives talks to huge audiences at photography festivals and conservation events around Europe so we are delighted and extremely fortunate that she has agreed to speak to Keyworth Camera Club.
