Pulitzer Prize Winning Cathal

At this week’s meeting Angela, welcomed Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Cathal McNaughton. Cathal showed a selection of his images, most of them taken when he was working as a photojournalist for Reuters news agency and based mainly in India. It’s not every day that a visiting speaker can relate a story of how he has had to run for his life to escape an angry mob! Some of Cathal’s photographs showed humanity at its lowest ebb but, as he said, they were taken with integrity and he did like to think that his images became the voice of the less fortunate. Rohingya, India, Kashmir and Ireland were just some of the places where he has taken photographs but, by his own admission, this has taken quite a toll on his mental health. He has given up globetrotting and has returned home to the Glens of Antrim where he now looks after his elderly parents. Cathal finished off his talk by giving club members a few tips on the genre of Street Photography.

At this week’s meeting, members will have the opportunity to share their favourite photographs which they have taken in the last year.
