Globetrotters in Chester

Presents

  • Jim Holmes – the Mekong River, Water Wars and Wats

Jim Holmes is a documentary photographer that has lived and worked through Asia for over 30 years. He has worked on humanitarian and international development projects for agencies such as Oxfam and the UN.  He specialised in the Mekong region countries for 20 years. 
The Lower Mekong flows through  Laos, Cambodia, Thailand and into Vietnam, where through the mouths of the nine dragons, it empties its silt laden water into the sea.  War ravaged these nations and maintained the poverty that was so evident until recent years. The river brought survival with its bounty of fish but now the flow is threatened by hydropower which could bring riches and poverty.

  • Brian Anderson – Yellowstone

” Paint cannot touch it and words are wasted ” wrote Frederic Remington in 1895 whilst pony trekking through Yellowstone.
At over 2.2 million acres, Yellowstone was the USA’s and the world’s first National Park when established in 1872.
This awesome place contains some of the world’s biggest geysers and hot springs, magnificent landscapes, and mighty beasts, including bears, bison, elk and wolves.
Share Brian’s stunning landscape and wildlife images from his 2013 trip to this simply staggering wilderness region. ‘Yellowstone’ is a must for all armchair nature lovers.
