Exhibition curator Anna Douglas, social historian Selina Todd and Siobhan Davies explore the work and legacy of Roger Mayne.
Pioneering choreographer Siobhan Davies CBE founded Siobhan Davies Dance in 1988 and has evolved over the years from a national and international touring dance company into a ground-breaking investigative contemporary arts organisation.
Anna Douglas is an independent curator and researcher drawn to post-war culture. She is co-curator, with Karen McQauid, of the Roger Mayne exhibition and previously curated the touring exhibition Shirley Baker: Women and Children; and Loitering Men, also shown at The Photographers' Gallery in 2015.
Selina Todd is a writer and Professor of Modern History at Oxford University. She writes about class, inequality, working-class history, feminism and women’s lives. Her recent book The People. The Rise and Fall of the Working Class, 1910-2010 (2015) continues to receive exceptional praise.
