I am currently in the process of researching and speaking with photographers whose period of mass recognition for their work was the sixties, seventies and eighties for a film project I am working on. The work of these photographers once filled the photo magazines and galleries across the world. They were asked to speak at conferences and many of them taught on some of the most forward thinking, recognised and regarded photography courses in the UK and US. Now in their seventies and eighties that same work resides under beds, deserted darkrooms and within dusty cupboards unseen and forgotten. Meanwhile, the photographers themselves continue to work on projects and pursue the medium with all of the passion and determination that they once did even though they believe that they have been largely forgotten. Their emails to publications go unanswered, their attempts to be exhibited often flounder as they hope for deserved retrospectives and recognition.
