Carousel: A Herefordshire Life Through a Lens film
Carousel' is a new film featuring aspects of Herefordshire life, with interviews and lots of old photographs and will be screened during March and April in Hereford, Ledbury, Leominster and Malvern as part of the Border Lines Film Festival (see link at the bottom of this piece).
Following audience favourites, 'Stories from the Hop Yards' and 'Chewing the Cud', this new Catcher Media film delves deeper into the Derek Evans’ photographic archive from the 1950s-1970s, bringing you the stories behind his photographs of the county, from the May Fair to Hereford United, from the Fownhope Heart of Oak walk to jazz clubs, from childhood to politics and much more.
The film is part of the Herefordshire Life Through a Lens project, which explores the huge collection of images and negatives from Herefordshire photographer Derek Evans.
Alongside digitising and exhibiting his archive, the project is creating an extensive selection of over a 100 oral history videos from Herefordshire people, about the memories the photographs evoke. The archive consists of over 200,000 negatives, 790 exhibition images, hundreds of prints, scrapbooks full of newspaper cuttings, photo journals, and daily log books of the studio's activities.
Rural & Business Crime Officer Paul Crumpton of West Mercia Police recently provided valuable Crime Prevention advice including how to stay safe at home, work and online.
Paul has supplied a pdf summary of the presentation which can be viewed via this link .
