Joseph-Philippe Bevillard - Interview With a Photographer

"Travellers tend to keep problems to themselves and are too afraid or too shy to express their concerns or problems to the general public. Or maybe they get fed up once they make complaint like reporting racism or discrimination, nothing has been done. Most of the Travelling communities know me as the photographer since the Travelling communities spread the word about me like wildfire. Traveller community are like one big family because they are all related through 1st, 2nd, 3rd cousins etc. I know they wanted me to tell the wider audience about housing, discrimination and suicide problems. It’s very hard for them to talk about suicides because it affected the whole family, Suicides rate are 7 times higher than the settled population. I think having my pictures shared with the wider public can document their hardships and explain their culture to the settled community in Ireland and bring awareness of the existence of the Irish Travellers to a worldwide audience. I feel the Travellers are pleased with this exposure. Travellers are very proud people."

Honeyland review - A small miracle of a film

Honeyland is a documentary you can’t quite believe exists; its success in the US and Europe may be down to people going to check whether it is an actual film you pay actual money to sit and marvel at.

For Sama review - This century’s most extraordinary item of citizen journalism

Traditionally, documentaries about conflict are made by outsiders: journalists with travel visas that permit them to duck out of the action whenever they need pauses for thought. The subjects of For Sama, this century’s most extraordinary item of citizen journalism, happen to be living in the middle of that action, without any comparable privilege.

Greg Girard talks about photographing Hong Kong and South East Asia since 1974

"I first visited Hong Kong and SE Asia 1974-1975, and lived in Tokyo 1976-1977 and 1979-1980. I wanted to visit that part of the world from a young age, I can’t really say why, other than it seemed very far away. But what pushed me over the edge and made me want to take photographs there was a picture in a Time-Life book, in series on photography published in 1972, which showed Hong Kong harbour on a grey afternoon with the neon signs atop low-rise buildings on the waterfront. I mention this photograph, and reproduced it, in my book "HK:PM. Hong Kong Night Life 1974-1989”. It was as if the exotic was made ordinary and the ordinary made exotic."

A Bright Warm Day in May by Matt Hopkins

Filmed across three afternoons during the mini heatwave at the end of May. The most important thing was to get the camera rolling as soon as possible once they’d agreed to be involved, (usually within a couple of minutes) so that the immediacy of their story could play out on camera.
