Lectures 2021 – 2022

Lectures are due to continue at the Apex on Tuesday 19th October 2021

Speaker: Jim Holmes
Bowing to Tradition, the unexpected sides to Japanese Society 

From the country that gave us ‘high tech’ it comes as a surprise to find that many aspects of Japanese society defy modernity.  Farming with hand tools, villages of thatch and deeply held superstitious beliefs about foxes; there is much more to Japan than mega cities, volcanoes.  Travel with Jim through the unexpected sides of Japanese life and see how simple, handmade and contradictory it really can be. Jim Holmes lived in Japan for two years while working on photographic projects and this talk is his personal journey through Japanese life.

Jim Holmes

Jim is a fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and a professional documentary photographer specializing in worldwide humanitarian and environmental assignments from his base in Chester.
