TOUR: White Heat of British Industry, 1950s-60s: Photographs by Maurice Broomfield

Museum and Art Gallery

15 March 2019

Times: 12pm1pm

Join the V&A’s Senior Curator of Photographs, Martin Barnes, as he gives a guided talk of the show in the gallery, looking at Broomfield’s finished exhibition photographs and his previously unseen contacts sheets that reveal his working processes.

Maurice Broomfield (1916-2010) made some of the most spectacular photographs of British industry, showing skilled men and women proudly at work in factories throughout the UK.

His photographs reveal a workforce in an era of rapid transition, depicting the remnants of the nineteenth-century’s industrial revolution alongside emerging modern technologies. This exhibition is drawn from his archive housed at the Victoria and Albert Museum.

Suitable for adults.
