Acclaimed documentary photographer Edward Barber captures the anti-nuclear protest movement in 1980s Britain in a new exhibition this summer.


'I see this as preventative photography. The photographs here are both a celebration and a warning.'
Edward Barber

Taken originally to gain publicity for the anti-nuclear movement, Barber’s collected body of work, Peace Signs, today represents an important social document of these major protests against the presence of American nuclear cruise missiles in Britain between 1980 and 1984.

Barber’s images will appear alongside a newly commissioned graphic installation entitled Mind Map of Anti-Nuclear Protest to create a social record of both individual and collective responses to war.
