The Social Eye of Picture Post

Venue: Birkbeck 43 Gordon Square, Keynes Library

This event has ended.

Picture Post magazine was the publishing sensation of the 1940s  and early 1950s. Founded by anti-Nazi refugee journalists and photographers it blended continental large format photography with British social documentary to produce moving, funny, hard-hiting stories about Britain in times of war and peace. This event will hear from the two co-curators, Professor Amanda Hopkinson and Mike Berlin, about the themes they have explored in the current exhibtion at the Peltz gallery: Refugees, Incomers, Citizens: Migration Stories from Picture Post (4 June-5 July) with Professor Lynda Nead and Professor Steve Edwards in discussion.
