Patricia Holland is a writer, lecturer and researcher specialising in media and cultural studies, in particular television and photography. Her interest in domestic photography and popular imagery goes back to the 1980s, when she collaborated with photographer Jo Spence to produce Family Snaps: the meanings of domestic photography (Virago 1991). She is also the author of Picturing Childhood (I.B.Tauris 2006); of ‘Sweet it is to scan: personal photographs and popular photography’ in Liz Wells (ed) Photography: A Critical Introduction (Routledge 2015fifth edition), and other works concerned with family photography and the imagery of childhood. She is also engaged in research into aspects of broadcasting and television history.
She is currently a visiting lecturer at Bournemouth University, and has previously worked as an independent filmmaker, a community bookseller, an educational magazine editor, a freelance journalist, and a television editor and producer.
