Monire Childs Photographer - Collections

Many of the photographs in these collections featured in exhibitions.  It is not the intention to replicate the context or visual of the original exhibitions.  The photographs feature people who were prominent in the Politics, Culture and Society of 1980s Britain and are arranged accordingly.  Monire interviewed the subjects in partnership with her husband Professor David Childs.  Recordings from these interviews are available to researchers.  Contact Monire to obtain a more varied range of photographs on any of the subjects featured.
