Issue 105 – ‘LOCAL – nearby matters’
Photographic projects are often described as relating to ‘place’, ‘land’ or ‘community’, each with their own specific dimension. The ‘local’ however has more negative associations… Issue 105 ‘LOCAL’ looks at photojournalism, archives, council services, and relationships between individuals and their localities played out through photography. With features, portfolios, columns, interviews, exhibition reviews and book reviews.
Ella Ravilious is a Curator at the V&A, a trustee of Beaford Arts and the daughter of the photographer James Ravilious. In Issue 105 ‘LOCAL’ she talks about her father’s work and to Mark Lawrence from Oxfordshire History Centre about photographic collections in local archives.
Colin Samson is a Professor in the Department of Sociology at the University of Essex. In Issue 105 ‘LOCAL’ he reviews Through a Native Lens: American Indian Photography by Nicole Dawn Strathman and The Grass Shall Grow: Helen Post Photographs the Native American West by Mick Gidley.
