Just My Imagination… Student Showcase featuring Vanley Burke

vanley burke

Vanley Burke is often described as the ‘Godfather of Black British Photography’, whereby his iconic images have captured the evolving cultural landscape, social change, and stimulated debate in the United Kingdom over the past four decades. He draws strength from remaining a humble man of the community, whose personable character allows him to capture the intimate and private nature of people’s everyday lives.

Vanley will be sharing his experiences of race and ethnicity through a photographer’s lens. He will use his images to explore the impact of culture and change on black people’s lived experiences.
