Enjoy an evening with the Paramedic Paparazzo

Fascinating photographs of Peterborough and its citizens from over the last 40 years can be admired at a unique event next month.

An evening with Chris Porsz, the city's very own Paramedic Paparazzo, is being held at Peterborough Town Hall on Tuesday 20 March from 7.30pm in aid of the Mayor of Peterborough's Charity Fund.

Guests will get to meet Chris, whose photography has met with critical acclaim and been featured in exhibitions at Peterborough Museum, Nene Park, Queensgate and London Luton Airport.

As well as discussing his photographic work, Chris will also talk about the tragic story of his parents resistance and survival in war torn Poland and share stories from over 30 years as serving the city as a Paramedic.

The stories behind his worldwide celebrated book 'Reunions' will also be shared, as Chris reveals how he painstakingly tracked down people who had appeared in his early work, picturing them again 30 years later - in the same Peterborough location.

Following his recent work, 'Streets of Europe', Chris is now busy on his latest project 'Streets of Britain' and will share some exclusive images.

Chris said: "I hope that those who come along will find it interesting and enjoy the stories behind the people who live in our historic city. It's also a chance to help aid a fantastic cause."

John Fox, the Mayor of Peterborough, said: "This is an evening not to missed. Anyone who has an interest in Peterborough and the people who live here will be absolutely fascinated by Chris's work."

Tickets cost £5 and can be booked in advance by calling 01733 452319 or you can pay on the door.

Doors open from 7pm, with guests asked to access the Town Hall from the rear entrance in St Peter's Road.

The Mayor's Charities for 2017/18 are: Addenbrookes Charitable Trust; Sea Cadets and Shopmobility.
