The Time is Right: a first look at Zelda Cheatle's new exhibition
Thursday 10 March 2022

Zelda Cheatle HonFRPS, recipient of the RPS Award for Outstanding Contribution to Photography 2021, will give attendees a first look at her exciting new exhibition, The Time is Right, curated for the inaugural Jeddah Photo in Saudi Arabia.

For a predominantly male oriented culture, Zelda notes that it is a turning point for a woman to be asked to curate an exhibit there.  Added to that, more than half of the participating artists are women. 

Tickets are £2 (all proceeds going towards a new Women in Photography Bursary)
