An online alert for today, November 30:
November 30, 7:30pm (This online event will take place via Zoom. This is a live event and will not be recorded.)

In this edition of The Brontë Lounge, we’re joined by award-winning artist and portrait photographer Carolyn Mendelsohn.

Inspired by a quote from Emily Brontë's 'Wuthering Heights', Carolyn Mendelsohn's stunning installation ‘Hardy and Free’ celebrates the enduring connection between Yorkshire women and the landscape, telling unique and powerful stories through projection, soundscapes, personal objects and a filmic collection of photographs.

In this event, we’ll be discussing Carolyn’s process, spotlighting the four months where she embarked on a series of adventures to capture the personal stories of remarkable women living and working in the Bradford District.

We’ll also have a chance to hear about her technical process, both behind the camera when taking photos and in front of the microphone when interviewing her portraitures.

‘Hardy and Free' was commissioned by the Brontë Parsonage Museum and is on display at the Museum until 31 December 2023. The accompanying film can be watched on our YouTube channel.
