THE ROLE of photography in studying Warwickshire’s past will be up for discussion at the Local History Society’s first event of the year.

Photographic historian Jim Ranahan, will explore Warwickshire’s rich photographic history and its continuing role in photographic innovation.

Jim, who is also an archivist, will also look at the photographers and consider how and why they have chosen to represent the county as they have.
