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.
