Dr Sam Vale, Programme Director of Photography at Canterbury Christ Church University, is about to publish a book on British Cherry blossom.
Senior Lecturer in Photography, Rob Ball, has a new book of photographs of Coney Island coming out in June, with an essay by Dr Mark Rawlinson.
Dr Chris Pallant, a member of the School of Media, Art and Design since 2010, has been busy working on two book publications. To ensure the scholarly rigour of these works, Dr Pallant undertook an extended period of primary research, visiting archives in the United States (the Margaret Herrick Library in Los Angeles and the Bobst Library in New York), France (the Cinémathèque Française), Germany (the Deutsche Kinemathek), and in the UK (the British Film Institute, The Ray & Diana Harryhausen Foundation, and the London Film Museum), to name but a few. Extensive interviews were also conducted with practitioners from a range of media backgrounds. Much of this activity was made possible by funding received from the British Academy.
