'Photographing Beyond the Imagination with Valda Bailey

Event info

Photographing Beyond the Imagination...a conversation with Valda Bailey.

Janet Haines will be 'In Conversation with Valda Bailey"  and speak in depth to  her about her inspiration and the thought processes that go into the creative images Valda makes.

It is hoped the recording will be available after the event but will only be accessible for two weeks.



Valda Bailey is a freelance Photographer whose approach to photography is greatly informed by her background in painting. Her use of blur, multiple exposures, and intentional camera movements give her work an abstraction that is subtle and distinct. Valda was awarded a Direct fellowship by the RPS in January 2020 and now sits on the RPS Assessment Panel for Visual Art.
