‘Vernacular Slide Photography and Highgate School’s Collection’ by Elaine Woodbridge @ Highgate School Museum
Jun 6 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Vernacular Slide Photography and Highgate School’s Collection

Elaine Woodbridge has been a volunteer archivist at Highgate School for the last two years working on the school’s photographic slide collection and other projects.  Elaine has been fascinated with mid-century slide photographs since she began collecting them more than twenty years ago in South Africa.  In her journey with old slides, she has digitised and creatively edited them, shared them on social media, made art and given public talks about them.

Found photographs have an enthusiastic following in popular culture where people do everything from collecting, blogging and making art with them, to trying to reunite them with their original owners.  The snapshots of yesterday have also influenced mainstream photography and given rise to new aesthetic traditions.  They have great creative potential and have been used by artists in a myriad of ways.  But they also contain an intimate and important record of people’s lives and society in past decades, as well as the worlds of work and education.  Elaine has read widely on this subject which finds itself at the meeting place of technology, history, popular culture, fine art and archives.

Elaine is completing a Masters degree in Archives and Records Management at the University of Dundee and previously studied Archaeology, Anthropology and Sociology at the University of Cape Town.  She is not averse to scratching around in flea markets and dusty drawers for lost photographs.  Elaine was delighted to be given the task of working with Highgate’s slide collections, showing school life in the 1960s and 1980s, which she says is a treasure trove of surprising images that open a window on decades past, and is a valuable component of the school’s archive holdings.  She asks what we can learn from them and how to understand the collection against the backdrop of British vernacular photography.

Elaine will discuss concepts of snapshot photography and offer behind-the-scenes insights into caring for and archiving a slide collection, covering storage and preservation, copyright and digitisation.  Her talk will be illustrated with stunning images from her South African collection, as well as those of Highgate School.  She will comment on the value of the collection for bringing to light the school’s changing education technology, built environment and way of life.  The 1960s to 1980s was a period on the brink of great technological and digital change.  It is a world still cherished in the living memories of many parents and alumni.

Join Elaine Woodbridge at Highgate School on June 6 2022 to hear more about this intriguing topic and see a glimpse of life at the school back in the day.

Jazz in the House: Blue Town Trio @ Lauderdale House
Jun 9 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm

The Blue Town Trio features emerging London-based talent Zoe Francis on vocals, multi-award winning Jim Mullen on guitar (Morrissey Mullen, Terry Callier, Mose Alison, Georgie Fame, Gene Harris), and the incomparable Ross Stanley on Hammond organ.
It’s a cracking repertoire of classic standards with fresh arrangements. Songs including “Spring Can Really Hang You Up the Most”, “Too Late Now”, “Skylark”, “Who Can I Turn To”, “Midnight Sun”, “Nature Boy”, “Daydream”, “My One and Only Love”, “In a Sentimental Mood”, “Cinema Paradiso” and many more. Zoe’s love of a great lyric and beautiful voice set against the rich layers of sound from Ross’s Hammond and Jim’s melodic blues lines make this trio sound like a mini orchestra – not to be missed!

“Something a bit special is going on when this artist takes the stage…a classy poised singer” – London Jazz News on Zoe Francis

“Zoe communicates a love and understanding of the classic American Songbook with the lightest of touches, her choice of not-quite forgotten songs is canny too” – Dave Gelly (The Observer)

London Dreams @ Highgate Gallery
Jun 10 @ 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm

London-based artist Tina Leslie is pleased to present her latest exhibition at Highgate Gallery this summer, where she will showcase a selection of paintings inspired by both city and nature in mixed media and oil.

London Dreams is an impressionistic journey through the shapes, colours, and textures of London. It explores the structures of the city, forming patterns which respond to its many and varied sculptural forms.

From Hampstead Heath to Primrose Hill to Alexandra Palace, Tina weaves pathways through the contrasting architectures of buildings such as St Paul’s and the Shard.  Along the Silver Thames she plays with colour and light.  She invites you to engage with different perspectives through proximity and distance, gaining birds eye views and diving down into detailed interpretations of the life force of the capital.

Tina’s London paintings seek to explore the dynamism and balance of the urban context, doing justice to the monumental city while exploring the details within the beating heart of the cityscape.

In her series ‘Nature’s Threads’, Tina has sought inspiration from a very different source.

She has explored an intuitive desire to return to nature as a theme, attending to the interplay between photography, colourful acrylics, pastels on board and painting.  There was a natural fluency which emerged spontaneously through this journey, researching the movement, shapes, colour and line in evocative weaving of lattice forms in branches, blooms, flowers and trees.  The work explores the magic and the majesty of the art in nature.

Both themes celebrate enjoyment of the exciting possibilities of abstract pattern, energetic rhythms and vibrant colours.
