Julia García Hernández, Curator of the E. Chambré Hardman Landscapesexhibition, revisits Open Eye’s early history with guest speaker Peter Hagerty. In 1980, during his time as Director at Open Eye, Peter organised a significant E. Chambré Hardman retrospective that succeeded in drawing attention to a neglected photographic archive on the verge of being destroyed. Julia and Peter will discuss exhibiting photography and the photographic archive, and consider Hardman’s contribution to picturing the British landscape, highlighting key works in the exhibition.
