The Arts Society Lecture: The Power of Photography

Chipping Sodbury Town Hall

The Power of Photography, by Roger Mendham

Each lecture, which lasts approximately one hour, is given in the morning and afternoon.

Photographs have the ability to stop time, to provide a freeze-frame of a moment in time and space. They give the observer the opportunity to think, to react, to feel and to soak in the details of the circumstances surrounding the image. This talk examines some the most important images and photographers of the past century. It explores why these images are so powerful and influential in our understanding of history.

A keen and accomplished photographer, Roger Mendham is now retired. His interest in art was sparked by his wife’s academic studies into the History of Art and he has a particular interest in 20th century art. Because of his passion for photography he tends to focus on the visual aspects of art. He has researched numerous statues and monuments and is interested in how they have evolved in response to cultural changes over the past century.
