Photographic Ephemera and Cultural Detritus: A conversation with Annebella Pollen (In Person and Online – 25th June 2024)

Over the last two decades, Annebella Pollen has built a body of publications based on photographic materials pushed to the margins. From photographic ephemera in end-of-life house clearances to dismantled 35mm slide collections, she’s become invested in what gets wasted and saved, what gets culturally consecrated and what gets culturally overlooked. Annebella’s talk follows this photographic thread through some of her previous projects and shows how it is informing her current preoccupations.

Annebella Pollen is Professor in Visual and Material Culture. She is author of books such as  Mass Photography: Collective Histories of Everyday Life (2015), The Kindred of the Kibbo Kift: Intellectual Barbarians (2015), Nudism in a Cold Climate: The Visual Culture of Naturists in Mid-20th-Century Britain (2021), and More Than a Snapshot: A Visual History of Photo Wallets (2023), and Art Without Frontiers: The Story of the British Council, Visual Arts, and a Changing World (2024).
