TALK: Ashley Cooper – Images from a Warming Planet
Date: Friday 22 September
Venue: Zeffirellis Jazz Bar (upstairs), Compston Road
Ashley Cooper, who lives in Ambleside, spent 13 years of his life travelling to all corners of the globe to visually chronicle changing climate and the effects of mankind’s activities on the fragile ecosystems of the earth.
The result is a stunning book – Images from a Warming Planet – which was launched in November 2016 at the Heaton Cooper Studio in Grasmere, an event was attended by mountaineers Sir Chris Bonington and Alan Hinkes among others.
The photographs in Ashley’s book are amazing, so expect to see many of them (and the stories behind them) at this thought-provoking illustrated talk.
