Public and Private, Memory and Archive

Susan Andrews is a practicing photographer whose research interests focus on the boundaries between public and private worlds: the family and the home; the relationship between individual and cultural memory; and the photographic archive as a resource to explore personal histories. Andrews is currently Emeritus Reader in Photography at the School of Art, Architecture and Design, LMU where she curates the ‘East End Archive’ for which she co-authored the book, ‘Archive: Imagining the East End’ with Dr. Nicholas Haeffner. Most recently, she has been working with former East End ‘Brady Club’ members to uncover lost stories and photographs relating to the Club, largely from the forties, fifties and sixties. Her work has been published in collections such as Phaidon’s ‘Family - Photographers photograph their families’ and exhibited widely, including at The International Incheon Women Artists’ Biennale, Seoul International Photography festival, 
The National Portrait Gallery, London and at The Geffrye Museum, an exhibition which she co-curated with visual anthropologist, Dr Inge Daniels. Andrews has worked on two books with Daniels, ‘The Japanese House’ and ‘What are exhibitions for?’ for which she conducted on-site photographic studies. 

Susan studied psychology at UCL and photography at the Royal College of Art, London.
