Event Description

Close Up: Franki Raffles
6.30pm Thursday 27th May
Livestreamed through

For our eleventh Close Up artist talk we will be exploring the enduring influence of feminist photographer Franki Raffles. 

Rachel Nordstrom (Photographic Collections Manager at the University of St Andrews Library & Museums) will chair this special event. She will be joined by Alistair Scott (Edinburgh Napier University); who set up The Raffles Archive Project which has gathered together Raffles’ complete photographic practice, and Catherine Spencer (Lecturer in Modern and Contemporary Art, University of St Andrews), who has taken an active research and academic role from within the Franki Raffles Collection since it was opened for access. 

We will also be joined by Jenny Brownrigg (Exhibitions Director, The Glasgow School of Art) who curated the first major exhibition of Franki Raffles work in 25 years and contemporary photographer Alicia Bruce, whose Violence Unseen project continues the legacy of the work by Raffles stemming from her pioneering work with the Zero Tolerance campaign against domestic violence.

This event is presented in association with University of St Andrews Library & Museums.
