Val Williams and Brigitte Lardinois were invited to map the photographs collection in the Glyndebourne Opera archive, and to select photographs for a proposed book. This rich historic archive contains work by photographers including Bill Brandt, Angus McBean and Tony Ray-Jones, plus many emigre photographers known to the primarily emigre management of Glynedbourne.
The challenge of this project was to both map a history of Glyndebourne Opera, and to acknowledge the part that photography has played in making that history visual and permanent. Val Williams' essay in the book charts that history.
