British photographic history

Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

Online: Out of the Archives - Four Corners / February 2021

Out of the Archive is a new online talks series exploring how photography archives can both document the past and inspire the present. It is presented by Four Corners and will bring in organisations and artists working with archives to share untold stories, initiate new work and catalyse community projects. It runs on Thursdays throughout February

The next two talks are: 

Revisiting Radical Community Photography | 11 February | 6.30 - 8.00pm 
A closer look at the radical, youth-led photography projects recording South and East London in the 1970s and 1980s by photographer Paul Carter, who will be discussing the influential Blackfriars Photography Project, as well as the more recent SE1 Stories initiative, which is documenting and celebrating the history of community action around Waterloo and North Southwark.

Also joining are Andrew Woodyatt and Tamara Stoll from the Rio Cinema Archive. They will be sharing their discovery, documentation and publication of a vast collection of images produced by the Rio Cinema’s Tape/Slide Newsreel Group, which gave a voice to unemployed young people in Hackney, and now offers a fascinating insight into the era. Register here 

Photographers in the Archives | 18 February | 

Anita Corbin and Ingrid Pollard  will talk about their work reactivating photography archives to create new projects. Further details coming soon.
