Hélène Binet photographs the Jewish Country House

The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities (TORCH) has recently announced an award from their Creative Industries Seed Fund. The funding will enable Professor Abigail Green to work with Ruth Ur, founder of the international arts consultancy urKultur, to open up a new dimension to the Jewish Country Houses project. 

The Creative Industries element of the project involves commissioning one of the world’s leading architectural photographers, Hélène Binet, to photograph up to six of the project’s participating country houses, rendering it more attractive to the public as well as to a scholarly readership. These images will feature in the book that will be the flagship academic output of the project. The full funding announcement can be seen here
