Val Williams and Alistair O Neill at the Fashion Photography Conference at London College of Fashion.

An Extract from Katherine’s Baird’s report on the conference:

The Fashion Photography Conference was held in the Rootstein Hopkins Space on Friday 3 June to celebrate the on line publication of The Woolmark Company Archive on the AHDS Visual Arts website (http://ahds.ac.uk/visualarts/collections/index.htm). Val Williams and Alistair O’Neill (and a team of assistants) then took to the stage with a multimedia talk on the LCF slide collection entitled “Pat, do you still use these?” A little mise en scene was created with a sixties table and orange table lamp complete with lady flicking through magazines and clicking through a slides show on an ancient caramate while Alistair and Val spoke about the history of slides and the current debate on slides v digital images. Alistair referred to the LLR survey and report “Still Images and the Digital Future” and the AHDS/JISC consultation “The Digital Picture”. We were treated to a typical travelogue on New Zealand mimicking the family slide shows that used to occur after a holiday. Both spoke warmly about the increasingly rose-coloured treasure trove that is the LCF slide collection and finished with a brilliant recreation of a 1974 fashions tape slide programme held in the collection, created originally by the International Wool Secretariat, with Maggie Norden doing a brilliant voice-over of the original script.
