In August 2018 SSHoP were delighted to welcome author Janice Galloway to speak at our summer lecture and journal launch.
Janice delivered a talk focused on the family habit of collecting photographs as mementos. The lecture expanded on the theme explored in ‘Writers Choice’, her contribution to the summer edition of Studies in Photography.
