Posing!

Thursday, April 22nd, 2021

In this latest episode, the Unexpected duo, James and Sam, strut their stuff on the catwalk of the past to strike a pose at the unexpected history of POSING! Which is all about seventeenth-century sartorial elegance and cutting a dash around town, as well as family paintings, photographs, and the history of the selfie. It’s also all about Michelanglo’s David and native Americans in the pictorial press. It’s also all about the history of consumption and owning far too many pairs of gloves! Who knew!
