Title Working Lives

Author Darwell, John

Signed By The Photographer

ISBN: 9780905164366

Condition: softcover



John Darwell Working Lives An exploration of the many clothing industries working in and around Manchester, England. The images concentrate on the traditional and endangered areas of hatting, clog making and leather tanneries, capturing not only the startling 'Dickensian' environments but also the people who spend their working lives using processes that have essentially remained unaltered for the last one hundred years. Since this work was completed the majority of the locations visited have subsequently closed down. Published as a catalogue by Stockport Art Gallery in 1986.
