How far would you go to follow your fellow?

This month, we are excited to invite Genevieve Guilleme to talk about the stories of the followers, mostly women, who come with a partner and live there for a month, a year, five years… And go somewhere else for a month, a year, five years… With children raised as global nomads, from assignment to assignment, post-doc to post-doc or fellowship to fellowship, just floating along the valued professional mobility, in a continuously temporary exile.

Genevieve is a researcher in visual arts, a photographer and a 'follower' who arrived in Cambridge 5 years ago. We met her via the e-Luminate photo competition and her 'follow the fellow' project is currently exhibited at Murray Edwards College. 

Come with us for an inspirational project, where photography isn't the only medium but a critical part of the story telling!

    Hi I have just joined the meet up site and hoping to come along to your Cambridge Darkroom meet on Thursday. I have been known to do my own Digital Darkroom work as I used to be a Computer Graphics Artist in my youth. Not sure if your group is for me or vice versa so will give it a go if it is ok with the group?

    I am a "follower" too I guess. Sounds like an interesting evening. Are newbies welcome?

  • Lina O.

    Hehe, well we don't expect every session to appeal to all, but this should also be of interest to anyone who is thinking of taking on a project

    I've only just "got" what this is all about. On my first reading I was thinking hippy chicks and scien-bloody-tology!
    Mmmmm, think I might have to have a think about whether to attend this one or not
