The fourth and final of four films from the Women at Cambridge series I had the pleasure of shooting for Duckrabbit and The University Of Cambridge -“Planting women’s roots in Cambridge”
Part of the #RisingTide and #WomenAtCambridge exhibition at The University of Cambridge Library.
From the Youtube description:-
The impact of women at Cambridge is incalculable. In 1869, Girton College became the first women’s college at Cambridge, and the first in Britain, to offer residential higher education for women. But Cambridge University did not grant degrees to women until the late 1940s, the last British University to do so.
In this final film, Jo Cobb, Head Gardener of Murray Edwards College, joins co-curator of The Rising Tide: Women at Cambridge exhibition, Dr Lucy Delap, in Eliza Baker Court at Girton College. Here, they discuss the influence of former Head Gardener, Chrystabel Procter on the college and on future female gardeners across the University.
I really enjoyed hanging out with Dr Lucy Delap and meeting Jo Cobb during the making of this.
Was very nice to spend time in the Eliza Baker Court at Girton College too.
It was also a real pleasure & honor (as it always is) working with Ben from Duckrabbit, who never ceases to amaze with his kind-hearted, open professionalism.
Shot on multiple Sony A7III’s and a Sony FS5 with Tamron 28-75, Sony 16-35 and another lens that I’ve forgotten should you care about that kind of thing :)
