This years excellent keynote by nationally acclaimed photographer, Ian Macdonald took place in the Forum Cinema on Tuesday the 24th April. The evening, which was open to the public, included a screening of a documentary film ‘Shooting Time’ covering Ian’s early work on Teesside and a presentation on his more recent work.
