(Cancelled due to Covid-19) David Trattles - "Photographing the Joy of Human Relation - Travel By Bicycle" (7:15 PM EDT)
David Trattles will be your host for a session on photography, and in making community as you travel.
Dave knows cycling and slow documentary work: for 25 years he has been traveling by bicycle through 100 countries, and working as a social documentary photographer (Canadian Geographic, National Archives of Canada, Macleans, Elle, Ottawa Magazine). This presentation will be about why you should travel and what happens when you do – shared largely through stories that will have you out there in the world, living a specific time and experience.
Along the way, Dave reveals the joy of human relations. By learning who the people are and how they live their lives, rather than focusing on what they are doing, he will share stories about ordinary people who do extraordinary things (Muslim girl boxers of Calcutta, German cowboys, cheese rollers of Sicily, Tomato throwers of Bunol, Kefir makers of Tajikistan/Afghan border, marathoners of Calcutta, remote Canadian communities..).
Dave Trattles will inspire you to get in touch with your own life force – to go out into the world on your bicycle and express your own individuality, your own richness – and to engage deeply in the lives and experiences of others.
There will be a $20 fee for non-members.
