Session Three: Shifting Perspectives: Work and the Photographic Industry

Pete James - Revisiting Emma Barton: creating futures from the past

This paper describes a live project based around an archive of previously unseen material relating to the acclaimed but largely forgotten Birmingham Pictorialist Emma Barton. Working with the contemporary commercial photographer Marta Kochanek, the project seeks to inform, inspire, create and promote opportunities for women photographers in the photographic industry.

The Archive 

Marta Kochanek - Archival Project Coordinator for Annie Leibovitz Studio / NYC 2011

Entering the archives was like a touch of the past, making a deep bow towards photographers whose work inspired me during my photographic journey. I was there to touch the history, to learn photography from a very unique perspective, to take the most from the Masters, and to use the experiences in preparing for my future career.

Deliverance of Body and Soul.

Tim Andrews, he is the person to whom I have been introduced by fellow photographer.

Tim is 59 and has taken early retirement due to being diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease. He has always been interested in photography and since he retired 3 years ago, he has had his photograph taken by over 100 photographers mostly professional including Rankin, Mike McCartney, Vanessa Winship, Steve Bloom, Antony Crossfield, Jillian Edelstein.
I was to photograph a person suffering the disease. I was to photograph a lawyer who ended his carrier and started to raise funds for the Parkinson’s charity. I finally was to photograph a person who trusted me and was hoping to get something different. I was to be a photographer and a movie producer at the same time.

I wanted to concentrate on human’s body deformation. I knew that Tim’s hands may be shaking. With all respect, I was to photograph the beauty. 

Following by successfully developed project I have been involved working with Tim Andrews I can proudly announce upcoming exhibition and the fact that The Project will also be featuring in The Culture Show on BBC2.

OVER THE HILL: A PHOTOGRAPHIC JOURNEY
I met Tim Andrews 4 years ago, we were exchanging emails since then. Today we met again and so we could not spot talking! Inspiring and unique character, full of joy and fun. We had quite relaxed shoot today concentrating on Tim's body according to his projects' idea. There are more to come!
