Dr Mike O'Mahony from the University of Bristol is coming to UCLan during September to present a Public Seminar entitled 'Sport: Through a Glass Darkly: Olympic Visions and the Sporting Photograph'.
Dr O’Mahony is the author of the books Olympic Visions: Images of the Games through History (2012) and Sport in the USSR: Physical Culture – Visual Culture (2006) and co-editor of The Visual in Sport (2011).
He is currently running a visual project called 'My Games', which seeks to build an alternative visual archive to reflect everyday experiences of the 2012 London Olympic and Paralympic Games. He is also developing a project – relevant to his UCLan lecture – looking at photography and sport.
The event takes place on Thursday 5 September, 4-5.30pm at Greenbank Building GR348. For any further information and to book a place please email Professor John Hughson.
