Meeting Room 104 – The Library of Birmingham

Pete James, Curator of Photographic Collections at the Library of Birmingham will discuss how, over the last 148 years, Birmingham’s four libraries have been the subject of a wide range of projects by architectural, documentary and amateur photographers. The talk will explore some of the ways in which the libraries and their staff have been represented, recorded and celebrated, culminating in the Reference Works project.

The Library of Birmingham holds some 3.5 million items ranging from daguerreotypes to digital works by lead contemporary artists. In 2006 the collection was awarded Designated Status by the Museums, Libraries and Archives Council in recognition of its national and international importance.

The Library of Birmingham, Arts Council England and collaborative partners have created GRAIN, a hub and network of photography within the region. The combination of REFERENCE WORKS and GRAIN will make The Library of Birmingham a national and international centre for photography.

The event is the second in a series of Photographers Talks linked to REFERENCE WORKS at the new Library of Birmingham.
