Last Thursday FramSoc was privileged to welcome Nic Dunlop, the award-winning photographer and journalist, to the HPT. Nic is a fascinating man, gentle yet compelling, and clearly determined that those with whom he shares his photographs might understand the complex narrative that underscores them.
His talk was exceptional and his photographs haunting, and I cannot believe there was anybody there who did not take something thought-provoking away with them. It was particularly pleasing that there were so many students among the audience to hear him – a valiant effort during the lead up to exams. In this world of the ‘sound bite’ a man who says that he will wait for the book to be written in order to understand the complexities of a situation gets my vote – bravo!
