This exhibition presents work from the last 4 decades by Ian Beesley, one of Europe’s finest documentary photographers.
Large scale prints include images taken at Salts Mill in the 1980s as it slowly shut down, and some from 2017 when Beesley returned to the building thriving once more.
Elsewhere, an extraordinary Wall of Workers shows portraits of men and women employed in trades that no longer exist.
The final part of the gallery houses The Big Big Camera- a century old- industrial relic revived by Beesley- and the work he has created with it. Throughout the exhibition are poems written by Ian McMillan. Beesley’s friend and frequent collaborater.
