‘Better looking than he really is’ (Transnational Biographies Workshop)
Keynote lecture by Robert Bickers (Bristol University)
In April 1998, the Guardian newspaper profiled a number of residents of a tower
block at Holly Street in Hackney who had been the subject of portraits by photographer Tom Hunter. One of these was a 'bit of a mystery man', Mr. Archer.
In this talk Robert Bickers teases out more of the life of a man who somewhat puzzled his neighbours.
All are welcome. The lecture is followed by a reception
