You may want to revisit a project that you feel was not completed properly, or a body of work that could have been developed further. In both cases, the original research material will prove invaluable. Going back through your archive also gives you a sense of what has been achieved over a period of time and that a history is being recorded. New ideas can often be sourced from research archives as, generally, they hold more material than could have been used when they were originally set up. Photographers regularly revisit their archives and some have particular images or items that crop up as being significant for them time and time again. 5.4 Title: Those Who Fear... from `Gentlemen' Photographer: Karen Knorr One of the 26 images Knorr created in the 1980s, which used image and text to create a humorous and critical perspective on the patriarchal values of London gentlemen's clubs and their members. The text featured with each image is drawn from speeches made in Parliament or in the news: Those who Fear the Rule of Women but Love the Monarchy should reconsider their Prejudice; to ensure the right of his Firstborn to the Throne will create a better Climate. 126 Revisiting past research
