Our Place, Our Priorities: Photography at The Pathways Centre | Weeks 22 & 23 | 28032013 & 04042013

Alastair Bonnett

Last week we met Alastair Bonnett, and discussed our project with him. He was in town as he had delivered the 2013 SSC Public Lecture the night before (above). He wanted to talk with us because he is writing an article for the Times Higher Education magazine about the SSC’s work at The Pathways Centre… watch this space.

This week Vanessa, Robert and David went for a walk. We popped into the minilab to order our next display print; then gossiped about hometowns over a coffee in Angel (Vanessa is from Zuzwil – near Wil – in Switzerland, which is a similar size to Gainsborough), before popping into Revival for a quick chat with Angela and Holly, and ending up at Mary-le-Wigford for a catch-up with Jackie and Michael… a very ‘social’ walk/talk! On our way back up High Street we met Kirstie, Chris and Billy (below), who are fundraisers for Framework. A day of getting to know each other better whilst walking, talking and doing chores!

Today we finished processing the images from our recent Cathedral shoot, discussed next week’s public lecture, dropped our files off at the minilab (thanks again Dom and Dan!) and then popped into the studio of Graham the artist.

Graham's studio

Graham and Vanessa (a Swiss social work student on placement at The Pathways Centre), had an interesting disagreement about the meaning of life… Vanessa challenged Graham’s assertion that the meaning of life was to procreate… ‘What if one chooses not have children?’
