Dear members of British Photographic History,
To enhance the project I would like conduct interviews to help articulate the historical and political environment in which she worked (the documentary concerns her time spent in Britain, mostly east London, in the 1930s - 40s where she was heavily involved with the socialist movement and where she also became involved in espionage, famously recruiting Kim Philby for the KGB).
If you would like to help I would greatly appreciate it. If you are interested let me know and I can give you the proposal for the documentary to give a better idea of what it is about and here are some potential topics for the interview:
- the life of Edith Tudor-Hart
- the strive for socialist reform in 1930s London
- living conditions of London's working-class districts
If you would like to get involved I will aim to film the interviews in between early June and early July, however, I will happily work to your timetable if that makes it easier.
If you choose to carry out an interview I don't mind doing it in-person, online, etc. Whatever suits your preferences.
I understand that you will all be very busy at the moment and throughout the next few months but I would be incredibly grateful if anyone was interested or knew someone that could be.
