Snapshot in Time: photography and industrial heritage
STICK held its 2021 conference on Wednesday 17th November 2021 – “Snapshot in Time” – to discuss the importance of photography as a documentation and advocacy tool for industrial and transport heritage.
Photography is an invaluable tool for recording industrial and transport history – it is ideally suited for rapid documentation in a world where dramatic or catastrophic change can occur to the fabric of industry, almost overnight, and revolutionised the documentation of historic sites.
STICK ran a photography competition alongside the conference. You can read more about it here.
