Vanley Burke

About

An insightful conversation between two artists.

Rider Shafique, lyricist, poet, and MC from Gloucester interviews Vanley Burke, the iconic photographer widely acknowledged as the godfather of Black British photography.

Vanley Burke's iconic photographs have captured the evolving cultural landscape and social change, whilst stimulating debate over the past four decades.

His body of work represents possibly the largest photographic record of the Caribbean Diaspora in Britain, and as an avid collector, Vanley continues to connect histories through his substantial archive housed at the Library of Birmingham. From local community organisations to the Victoria & Albert Museum and Whitechapel, Vanley has exhibited widely in the United Kingdom, and as far afield as New York, South Africa and China.

This event is part of Gloucester History Festival's Spring Weekend.
