Four Corners Archive explores the early film and photographic heritage of Four Corners and Camerawork (formerly Half Moon Photography Workshop).

The project will bring unique archival resources into the public realm, making this important contribution to British cultural history widely accessible for the first time. It will create a permanent archive, website and oral history interviews, alongside a public programme of participatory talks, study days, exhibitions and associated events.

The project marks the 40th anniversary of Four Corners in 2016, and 40 years since the first publication of the renowned Camerawork magazine.

Four Corners Archive is made possible with the generous support of the Heritage Lottery Fund.
