A collection of industrial photographs by the late Maurice Broomfield will be displayed for free from 6 April to 26 June 2011.


Industrial Photographer, Maurice Broomfield, left school at 15 to work in a factory, and spent his evenings as a student in the Derby College of Art. Inspired by the drama of industry, he endeavored to convey this atmosphere with photographs and sketches, bringing an insight to those who would never experience such things. Recording the historical relationships between man and machine in post-war Britain, Broomfield made the most bleak environments making them appear epic and vibrant. A Fellow of the British Institute of Professional Photographers and an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society, Maurice Broomfield has had many exhibitions in Europe. The Public will be displaying up to 25 huge prints of Broomfield's classic photographs, revealing an inner beauty of industrial past.
