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.
In partnership withThe Richard Burton Archives, Cinema & Co.
