On 10th June our Speaker will be Jim Holmes, a freelance photographer documenting humanitarian work worldwide, in conjunction with international non-government organisations and charities that manage projects worldwide.
Aceh, After the Wave.
December 2004 saw a massive undersea earthquake send a wave of water over 20 Metres high rushing towards the Sumatran coast, in western Indonesia. Jim was assigned to document the disaster and the massive unfolding relief effort, returning many times over the next 10 years. His dramatic images were used worldwide by Oxfam, the UN and other agencies to illustrate the disaster, the need and the successes of the intervention that saved countless lives.
