Gallery Talk: Babs Perkins

Date: 07/26/2022
Time: 6:00 pm-7:00 pm

Babs Perkins will talk about her creative process and answer questions about her work and the techniques used to capture the images in her Moving Landscapes series, which is currently on display at the Library.

Babs is a cultural documentary and landscape photographer from Norfolk. Her work, whether representative or abstract, examines and weaves together the ideas of memory, perception, and attention. She has spent the last 10 years traveling in former Yugoslavia, writing about and photographing traditional agriculture and foodways. At the same time, she has photographed landscapes around Western Europe while investigating how they are valued, how they are approached, how they are remembered, and how they shape their inhabitants. She has chosen Gaelic titles for the photographs in this series, and Conor McCarthy, a resident of Dublin, will be on hand so we can hear the melodic words of his national language.
