Talk: 6.30 – 8pm, Monday 18 March, Arts Forum, 36 Marina, St Leonards on Sea, TN38 0BU
In the 1990s Adrian Arbib was one of a small band of photographers who documented the UK anti-roads movement.
Armed with little more than rope harnesses and mobile phones the size of bricks, the protesters were faced with often violent private security forces in muddy fields, high in the trees and even underground. Adrian Arbib lived on site photographing the events. In so doing he captured all aspects of life on the protest. His work is a unique record of an important moment in British political history when a political movement changed government transport policy.
A exhibition of Adrian’s photos – taken from his stunning book, “Solsbury Hill” (http://solsburyhill.org.uk/) – will also be taking place at the Arts Forum in St Leonards from 14 – 26 March:
