'Images in Time' Book Launch

At last nights preview of the photographic exhibition 'Global Style' here at Bath School of Art and Design, we were also lucky enough to be hosting a book launch for 'Images In Time: Flashing forward, backward, in front and behind photography in fashion, advertising and the press' by Aesa Sigurjonsdottir, Michael A. Langkjaer and one our conference organisers Dr Jo Turney!

“Images in Time offers an interdisciplinary approach to the study of photography and dress and emerges in response to research undertaken under the umbrella term ‘Wardrobe’. 
The book draws together international critical writings from scholars in anthropology, history, social sciences, the humanities and fashion studies, as well as photographic practitioners and museum curators and archivists, in an attempt to critique and valorize photography as a significant medium in the creation of wider socio-cultural discourse.”
