Out of the Archive: making visible the role,influence and process of the live art photographer

Lead Research Organisation: University for the Creative Arts
Department Name: Farnham College


An investigation, with a visual outcome, into the role of the photographer of seminal live art events from the 1960s to the present. Through consultation with live art photographers, modes of representation (which clarify the photographers' process and experience, drawing from their photographic archives) will be determined in order to produce work for exhibition which illuminates both on the stylistic attributes of particular iconic performance photographs and the photographers' experience of recording seminal performances.
