As part of the British Library’s Spring Festival 2013, the Central Saint Martins’ Fashion History and Theory final year students, have organised a Fashion Late evening on Friday, 1 March 2013. The event will showcase the British Library as a largely untapped resource for creative and fashion inspiration.
The first public screening of Dick Jewell’s film “Katherine Griffiths 1973 – …” is part of this event. Please see the link below for a promotional page for the film.
Just to let you know the film “Katherine Griffiths 1973 – … ” a film of my photobooth collection made by UK artist Dick Jewell, will be having its first public airing at The British Library for one of its LATE events on 1 March 2013.
There will be a photobooth in situ to document the events of the evening, which include fashion shows with a twist, demonstrations by collectors, inspiring workshops, costume drawing, pop-up stalls and talks.
Here’s a link with the full details –
They are also blowing up some of Dick’s found photobooth photos which will be exhibited on the night.
If, like me, you cannot go to see the film live, then here is a link to it on Vimeo.
Livia Satriano published author and writer of the vintage photo blog Assez-Vu, has been kind enough to pen a piece about the film project I did with Dick Jewell, for the online magazine Lost at E Minor.
Her mentioning the film Amélie, reminds me of a post I have been meaning to write about a series of peculiar photos I found discarded near Melbourne photobooths in the early nineties. More of that soon, I hope. In the meantime please click here to read her article.
The publishers of Lost At E Minor describe it as “an online publication of inspiring art, design, music, photography and pop culture: low brow sensibilities mashed with high brow movements. The site was founded in 2005 by brothers Zolton and Zac Zavos, who are also behind the Australian sports opinion website, The Roar. The site is compiled by a worldwide team of writers.”
Livia is an Italian media graduate based in Milan. She works as a freelance writer and researcher, mainly writing about music, art and culture. Here are more of her articles at Wunder Buzz.
Livia Satriano‘s blog is well worth checking out, too. She says Assez Vu is “a collection of visual memories: all things odd and beautiful from the past. Sometimes remembered, more often forgotten. Surely worthy to be seen.”
