RICHARD WINTLE – with an illustrated talk on life through a lens.
Every picture may tell a story but only if it’s a good one. And that depends on who takes the pictures.
In a career that spans more than forty years as a freelance press photographer, Richard Wintle has taken and gathered more than two million images, each of which tells a story, about everything from sport to celebrity, politicians to peacemakers, and from fireworks to this Festival. He has put the best of them in a trilogy of illustrated books. Tonight, he introduces us to some of them!
The SWINDON FESTIVAL OF LITERATURE takes place 2nd – 8th May. It celebrates things well thought, well written, and well said, both serious and funny!
Seven days of great authors and entertaining speakers, it will include novelists, poets, philosophers, travellers, scientists, storytellers, historians, comedians, artists, and writing workshops There will be events at midday, teatime, and in the evening, carefully spaced and placed to enable you to attend almost every one, should you have the stamina!
