Seeing Cities Change: Local Culture and Class (Ashgate 2012)

Jerome Krase

Informal Township, Capetown, South Africa, 2000

In this book I bring together visual work on urban communities that I had been doing long before I had even heard of Visual Sociology, as well as after my encounters with the International Visual Sociology Association. As John Grady might have phrased it -- almost 50 years of doing urban sociology visually.

The Amazons First Ladies Fire Brigade, Australia

Merilyn Childs

Captain Minnie Webb, first (and only) Captain of the Amazons, First Ladies Fire Brigade, Armidale NSW Australia, demonstrating evacuating a burning building by leaping into the sheet held by citizens, c 1901. Not to be copied without permission.

"What shall we do with our girls" is a personal narrative that tells a little of the journey that emerged as a result of uncovering "The Amazons" and subsequent images. The photographs were generative of other creative works. [http://www.scribd.com/doc/133335562/What-Shall-We-Do-With-Our-Girls]. As a result of the photographs, I collaborated with costumier Gracie Matthews to reproduce the operational and dress uniforms of The Amazons. These were then paraded by contemporary female fire fighters as part of my key note address to the Australasian Women in Fire Fighting Conference, Sydney Australia, June 2006.
