MendelsohnJanet Mendelsohn arrived at the CCCS on a scholarship from the United States in 1966. While at the CCCS she was encouraged by Stuart Hall and others to experiment with photography as a tool for academic research.  Mendelsohn ended up taking thousands of photographs of life in Birmingham in the late-1960s. One of these images was featured on the 1969 CCCS annual report (pictured), and a selection will be on display at the CCCS50 exhibition at mac birmingham.  The exhibition opens to the public on the 10 May.
