With a long background in professional kayaking, and having recently completed a degree in Photojournalism at University College Falmouth, twice World Freestyle Champion Deb Pinniger is planning to share her first major photographic body of work from the Ladakh area of the Indian Himalayas.

Conducted during a recent expedition on the Zanskar and Tsarap Chu Rivers, Deb’s striking black and white images explore the remote cultures, landscapes and communities of the area, all bound by a dependability and raw admiration for nature and her essential waterways.

Currently studying for an MA in Anthropology, Deb’s work remains focused on an exploration of social landscapes and remote cultural groups. Working in a traditional photographic medium, Deb’s cross-section of intimate portraits and open landscapes display one of the last communities practicing Tibetan Buddhism in its original form. Her lecture will explore the effects of cultural isolation from the perspective of the Ladakhi people, and the influence of landscape in preserving social traditions, customs and beliefs.

Deb will talk about her own experiences within these communities on and off the water, describing the stories behind the photos through an immersive multimedia lecture. Fusing image, sound and text- both theoretical and prosaic- her presentation builds an engaging narrative of these outlying communities, their deep cultural traditions and ancient landscapes.

Deb will also make connections between her own kayaking background and recent passion within photography, encouraging discussion to how a slower and more methodical approach within both of these disciplines unlocks a new awareness to cultures, landscapes and nature.
