This Funzing Experience:

Chris has been a multi-award winning Photojournalist for 40 years working for National and Regional newspapers, photographing many groundbreaking stories, and has also been the designated photographer to follow and record Manchester United FC throughout the UK and Europe.

He was first and last on the scene of many major stories including serial killer Harold Shipman, Strangeways prison jail riots, Greenpeace protests by Bono at Sellafield nuclear power plant and two Manchester bombings.

He has worked closely with many Royals, politicians and celebrities, including Princess Diana, Tony Blair, Rudolph Nureyev, David Beckham, Richard Branson and Liam Gallagher.

Join Chris for a visual peek into his four decades of capturing important and significant moments of history.

As a photographer, he believes he is a witness to his time, he is a presence, a conscience, a creator, and an author. It is his intention to make those who view his photographs transported to that reality and he wants his pictures to impact on them and to transport them in present to witnesses of his time.

Venue: The Fitzgerald
Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.

*Please see venue website for admission (age restrictions) or accessibility information. Our talks may be filmed for promotional purposes.
