One of our funders, and strong supporters, is the UK’s Arts & Humanities Research Council, which is marking its tenth anniversary with a series of films about its activities since 2005. The Historical Photographs of China project is the subject of one of the latest of a series of short films it has commissioned. It highlights a rich variety of our photographs, and gives you a glimpse of how we work, and why we are doing this. Enjoy.
Don’t forget that you can also still listen to the July 2012 BBC Radio 4 programme about the project and its work, ‘Old Photographs Fever: The search for China’s pictured past‘, and hear from some of the donors of the material we have digitised. Nearly 300 people got in touch with us shortly that was broadcast, many with offers of material.
