Govan Free Church Photography Exhibition

November 6, 2018

This month the Govan Free Church will be hosting a photojournalism exhibition of the area by a collective of the local community. One of the photojournalists - James Holloway, who is the engine behind the exhibit, is a community development worker within Govan and worships with Govan Free Church.

Photojournalism is a particular form of journalism (the collecting, editing, and presenting of news material for publication or broadcast) that employs images in order to tell a story and capture social realities. Photojournalists must be well informed and knowledgeable about events happening right outside their door while working within a rigid ethical framework which demands that the work be both honest and impartial whilst telling the story in strictly journalistic terms.

Rev. Norman Mackay who has pioneered the church planting venture in Govan comments, "It is essential that any congregation located within a given community should possess an understanding of that community. One litmus test we can apply in order to evaluate our understanding of the local community is whether or not we can as a church produce accurate social commentary such as the production James has inspired."

Dates to be announced and admission free.
