Janet Mendelsohn : Varna Road

£15.00

Janet Mendelsohn : Varna Road

This catalogue accompanied the 2016 exhibition of Janet Mendelsohn, Varna Road. Made during 1967–69, they focus on Birmingham’s inner-city district of Balsall Heath and in particular Kathleen, a young woman with whom Mendelsohn formed a close relationship.

Enrolled as a student at the newly-established Centre for Contemporary Cultural Studies (CCCS), Mendelsohn was encouraged by Stuart Hall and Richard Hoggart – then deputy and director of CCCS – to explore ways in which photography could be used in field research.
