In the Picture: Let’s Celebrate 365 with Jeremy Hunter

Talk February 7, 2012 7:00 PM

LET’S CELEBRATE 365 allows us to glimpse the diverse, colourful and sometimes obscure festivals, ceremonies and rituals celebrated around the world.

Artful and anthropological in equal measure, Jeremy Hunter‘s photographs are a snapshot of a world of truly disparate cultures and their celebrations, many of which have remained unchanged for centuries.

Hunter has travelled to more than 60 countries in 30 years, collecting images that explore the cultural landscape of the world that may help to create a better understanding of the essential “glue” that binds all societies together.

Hunter will specifically explore, through their celebrations, the cultural DNA of North Korea, Tunisia, Bangladesh, Papua New Guinea and India.

This event will be moderated by Paddy O’Connell of BBC Radio 4’s Broadcasting House and the Frontline Club’s First Wednesday strand.
