Odette England - The Long Shadow | Saturday 18 May, 6-8pm

Please join us on Saturday 18 May, 6-8pm for the launch of The Long Shadow: Unwrapped ~ Marion Post Wolcott's Labour and Love by Odette England published by Libraryman.

The Long Shadow: Unwrapped ~ Marion Post Wolcott’s Labor and Love reveals the unpublished life and images of the American photographer Marion Post Wolcott1 (b. 1910, d. 1990). Wolcott was the first woman hired as a full-time photographer for the Farm Security Administration in 1938 during America’s Great Depression.

The Long Shadow is a homage-style reflection on a female icon of photography. Drawing from Wolcott’s archive of unseen intimate portraits and through conversations with her family, Anglo-Australian photographer Odette England (b. 1975) juxtaposes them with her photographs and prose rewritten from interviews and historical records.

The book contains a preface and prose written by Odette England as well as 19 unpublished photographs by Marion Post Wolcott.
