Visual records of academic life…

Posted on

For those of you interested in ‘the visual’, you might be interested in the work of this photographer, Howard Guest http://howardguest.co.uk/. He does a lot of work with organisations and corporate portraiture.

Of particular interest is his work with the University of Cambridge – as part of the university’s celebration of its 800th anniversary, Guest produced a photographic exhibition capturing members of staff in their workplace and images of life at the university. The exhibition ‘On the Shoulders of Giants‘ was held at the Fitzwilliam Museum:http://www.fitzmuseum.cam.ac.uk/article.html?1178&sf_function=print

I think this is a really interesting way to document academic life, produce a visual record of organisational life…or celebrate an anniversary. Perhaps something to think about for the future?!
