Research Seminar: Alan Meades and Karen Shepherdson on Arcades, Archives and our Coastal Communities
Alan Meades and Karen Shepherdson of CCCU’s Centre for Research on Communities & Cultures will be discussing an photographic archive of seaside arcades recently acquired by SEAS Photography.
Project by: Dr Karen Shepherdson
The SEAS Photography Centre is located at Canterbury Christ Church under the directorship of Karen Shepherdson. It was first established in 2012 with assistance from a Heritage Lottery award and has already gained national recognition. The archive focuses on digitally archiving substantial historic seaside photographic collec-tions which have originated from the South East Coast. This has included the vast Sunbeam Photographic Collect-ion, the Dreamland Archive and numerous ‘Walkies’.

Project by: Rob Ball
The Dreamland Project provides a visual diary for a photographic research project that records the current state, reconstruction and resurrection of the Dreamland Amusement Park in Margate.
Since January 2014, we have been creating a series of unique tintype images as a response to an archive of historical Dreamland images and the space Dreamland inhabits. The second phase of the project will be made on colour film.
Each visit will require a darkroom to be built on-site and plates to be prepared, created and developed within the space they are made, often resulting in artefacts from the site physically appearing on the final object.
