EVENT: Alistair O’Neill on Diane Arbus and Maeve Brannan
The Photographers' Gallery Series: 16 November 2010 19:00
Alistair O'Neill on Diane Arbus and Maeve Brannan
This year-long Writing Photography series investigates different approaches, both creative and academic, to writing about photography.
In this talk Alistair O'Neill focuses on the early careers of two young women working in post-war New York: Diane Arbus as a fashion stylist and Maeve Brennan as a fashion journalist. It explores their contributions to fashion magazines such as Junior Bazaar, and then maps a connection to the urban field work that defines their later careers as a photographer and writer respectively.
O'Neill's interest in writing about photography comes from fashion history and the study of fashion magazine spreads; it is focused on reappraising editorial fashion writing as a means to understand the production of fashion photography.
Alistair O'Neill is a Senior Research Fellow in Fashion History and Theory at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design (University of Arts London). He is the author of London: after a fashion (Reaktion Books, 2007) and is a curatorial consultant for Somerset House Embankment Galleries.
