A Day with Jennifer Reeves at Bolney Chapel

Jennifer works for the V & A. She curates the photobooks collection at the National Art Library and also is involved in looking after the Royal Photographic Society Library since the transfer of the RPS collections to the V&A.

She will cover 3 topics:

1. The history of collecting photographic books at the V&A, from the 1850s to the 1930s, discussing examples of different movements and technological innovations that are present in the NAL collection.

2. The development of contemporary photobooks 1950-2019, again with examples of material available in the collection.

3. A roundup of a selection of the major photobook shows this year (Offprint/Arles/Aarhus Photobook Week/New York Art Book Fair etc) and/or a short introduction to the RPS library.

With regards the afternoon session; As a Librarian she is particularly interested in photobooks that intersect with the book form, whether that be through layout (to control pace and create juxtapositions), binding (to physically guide or affect the viewer's experience of the images), paper types (to highlight changes in theme), or ink (to create visual metaphors) so she has set an optional topic of: Photo-Books, the interaction of image and form.

Don't forget your packed lunch!
