Life on the Frontline
Photo-journalist, Rick Findler, was this morning’s Sixth Form lecturer. Rick has a particular interest in conflict photography and this has taken him to war torn areas including Northern Iraq, Libya and Syria where, on his most recent trip, he was photographing on the front line of the combat zone in Aleppo, risking life and limb to capture images that show the reality of the on-going battle.
Often working in extreme conditions, dodging bullets and running from mortar fire, Rick’s talk offered an extremely exciting, rewarding and sometimes violent insight into what is really happening in the world whilst opening people’s eyes to the difficulties and risks war photographers and journalists go through on a daily basis.
Isabelle Horrocks gave the vote of thanks on behalf of the Sixth Form.
