Diffusion

Diffusion: Cardiff International Festival of Photography is a biennial month-long international festival of photography taking place in Cardiff, Wales' capital city. The festival is initiated and delivered by Ffotogallery in collaboration with a wide range of local, national and international partners and supporters. 

Diffusion is a celebration of photography and the photographic image, in all its forms. Whether created, published, exhibited, collected or distributed in a physical or virtual way, the photograph has the power to inspire and provoke reaction, to reflect our own experience and that of society evolving around us.
— Ffotogallery

As described on their website...
Diffusion 2017 looks at ‘revolution’ in its widest context, investigating moments of social change, movements around freedom of expression, the pursuit of utopias, human rights and identity. Through the prism of photography and lens-based media, the festival will examine dramatic and wide-reaching changes over the last hundred years to the way we live – technological, political, social and cultural.

FFOTON ARE EXCITED TO BRING HARRY BORDEN TO WALES TO PRESENT HIS 10 YEAR PROJECT & BOOK OF PHOTOGRAPHY AND INTERVIEWS:
SURVIVOR: A PORTRAIT OF THE SURVIVORS OF THE HOLOCAUST

Survivor Book Cover.jpg

Based in London but working all over the world, Harry has photographed many dignitaries and celebrities, including Robin Williams, Ewan McGregor, Jamie Oliver, Tony Blair and Margaret Thatcher. Examples of his work are held in the collections of the National Portrait Gallery, London and the National Portrait Gallery, Australia.

This special Ffoton event on 17th May continues our exploration of what inspires photographers to initiate and stick with long-term projects. This is a unique opportunity to meet and hear a top professional discuss his personal approach to intimate portraiture away from the commercial studio environment and bringing the resulting body of work into a final book. You can also touch, sniff and purchase a copy of Survivor on the night - personally signed by Harry. Tidy.
