The Raissa Page Collection: Life Through a Different Lens

18 November, 2020, 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

This is an online event.

Come and explore Raissa Page’s most thought-provoking images through the eyes of historians, photographers, archivists, and most importantly, your own. Self-taught photographer Raissa Page used documentary photography to capture the lives of marginalised groups at times of social change during the 20th century. She was a founder member of the trailblazing all-female FORMAT Photographic Agency in the 1980s. Her images are of different times and other places, but the themes of feminism, politics, anti-nuclear protest, institutional care, ageing, childhood, and the environment resonate all the more today. Join Katrina Legg (Assistant Archivist, Richard Burton Archives) and Sian Williams (Head of Special Collections & Librarian, South Wales Miners’ Library) to discover potential new worlds by looking at the past.

This event is part of the hub series organised by Swansea University.
