Grafters: Industrial Society in Image and Word

Bradford Industrial Museum

Sat 3 Dec 2016 - Sun 5 Nov 2017

Nothing compared to photography when it came to capturing the Industrial Revolution. As Britain’s society changed, techniques in photography developed, enabling workers to capture their own lives for the first time.

Visitors will witness how the working classes went from objects in photos, to heroic representations of industry and finally to photographers themselves. The exhibition highlights unseen images from important photographic collections.

This is an exhibition on loan from the Peoples History Museum, Manchester. The exhibition is in partnership with Ian Beesley, with original works by the poet Ian Macmillan. Grafters is a photographic exhibition comprising predominantly of images from the Peoples History Museum photographic collection and Bradford Museums & Galleries photographic collection.

Family Friendly exhibition, suitable for all ages.
