Event description

Description

In 1855 Edward Reeves opened a Photographic Studio in Lewes, England, which is now run by his great-grandson Tom Reeves. It is believed to be the oldest surviving photographic studio that is run by the same family, in the same building- in the world.


Over 150,000 glass plates, plus 100,000 film negatives and around 200,000 digital images kept adjacent to the still functioning Victorian studio with original furniture and props and some equipment. Also preserved is the relating business paperwork: negative books, account books, correspondence as well as ephemera relating to a commercial photographic business.


Brigitte has found a way of developing the archive as a resource for building community and articulating a sense of place through outdoor exhibitions In this session, shortly before Remembrance Sunday, she will show the recent exhibition ‘Lewes Remembers the First World War’.

If you would like to book a place on this interactive session, please do so by Tuesday 31 October so the catering requirements can be finalised for the cold buffet lunch that will be served at the start of the session. If you have any dietary requirements, please let us know.

Please also note that if you attend this 2-hour and any other LWYL sessions in the future, you will not be required to make up the additional time. However, LWYL is an activity for the lunch break and not in addition to a lunch break. Please let your line manager know if you wish to attend so that appropriate cover can be arranged if necessary. We would like to encourage as many staff as possible to attend the LWYL sessions that are offered.

If you require further information please email learnwhileyoulunch@lcc.arts.ac.uk or come and have a chat with one of us.

All the best,
