Check out this wonderful project by Jonathan Chadwick, which makes use of photographic archives. I would love to do something similar with my vintage postcards of Leicester. I have previously attempted a 'then and now' series of photographs, but none so nearly as successful as these, which have a real emotional impact.
The Artistic Type: Latest News: Bygone Macclesfield Pubs
The Attic (a name which commemorates our first physical location) is, first and foremost, a site for the research students of the School of Museum Studies at the University of Leicester: a virtual community which aims to include all students, be they campus-based and full-time, or distance-learning and overseas. But we welcome contributions from students of museum studies - and allied subject areas - from outside the School and from around the world. Here you will find a lot of serious stuff, like exhibition and research seminar reviews, conference alerts and calls for papers, but there's also some 'fluff'; the things that inspire, distract and keep us going. After all, while we may be dead serious academic types, we're human too.
