photography forum hosted by Lenses of Croydon, was held at St Paul’s Church on the second night of the festival showcasing the work of legendary photographer Homer Sykes (work pictured above).

The event gave a platform to the Canadian-born British photographer who discussed the evolution of his maverick craft in an impressive career spanning over 40 years.

Event organiser and founder of Lenses of Croydon, Lee Townsend, said: “It is great that we can bring renowned photographers to Thornton Heath so that people know what the area has to offer and that it is a place to experience art. One man travelled two hours from Kent to come tonight. It was also fantastic to see the diversity of the audience which really represented Thornton Heath.”
