11th Dec 2012 / Jim Mortram and Wayne Ford

The Fringe closes on November 17th, but that doesn’t mean Miniclick is stopping! We run events all year round…

The miniclick photography talks present Jim Mortram in discussion with Wayne Ford. Tuesday December 11th, 7pm. Free Entry at The Old Market.

This is our first talk after the Fringe and we’re well chuffed to be able to bring Jim Mortram and Wayne Ford down to Brighton for December’s miniclick night – two people we’ve been keen to work with for sometime now!

Jim will be in discussion with Wayne and his own work, Small Town Inertia.

J.A Mortram is a documentary photographer and environmental portraitist based in East Anglia, United Kingdom. Jim’s work is centred on creating an expansive long-form photographic essay Small Town Inertia which explores the intimate and untold stories of marginalised individuals in the small rural community in which he lives.

His photography has been awarded and published widely.
