Teatime Talk: The Shape of a Building: Representing the architecture of 14 Henrietta Street through photography with Ros Kavanagh

When: Wednesday 18 June at 7pm
Where: Online via Zoom

For this special Teatime Talk, photographer Ros Kavanagh delves into the subject of architectural photography, discussing his stunning shots of 14 Henrietta Street which were commissioned for our recent publication of books. Each of the three publications focuses on a significant chapter in the history and evolution of the house; from its grand Georgian beginnings, through its decline into a tenement house, to the last of its residents and their move to suburbia. In this talk, Ros will cover what it took to capture the many layers of 14 Henrietta Street in images and how they in turn can add to the story of the building.
