The guided walk will take you through some of the spots featured in her book, Crocus Valley, and Ameena will talk about her practice and photographic process.
This guided walk is not so much about photographic technique or technical understanding, but more about slowing down and taking time to notice the little details. As such, this event is suitable for all levels of photographer – please bring something to take photographs with, it can be any sort of equipment including phones.
Planned route: Meet at Coombe Lane tram stop and walk through Addington Hills, past the viewpoint and down to Lloyd Park, ending at the cafe. An optional extra: For anyone interested, we’ll hop on the tram to Park Hill Park (10 mins walking from East Croydon station) and head to the Crocus Valley exhibition. Water Tower Teas cafe is located nearby where attendees can purchase hot drinks, lunch, and snacks.
The walk and exhibition visit is expected to last 2.5 hours and is suitable for most ability levels. Please note the walk is not fully wheelchair accessible. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
