An exhibition of newly discovered images by social documentary photographer Shirley Baker will take place this summer at the Grundy Art Gallery in Blackpool.
The exhibition titled ‘On the Beach’ takes a look at holidaymakers from Blackpool, one of the most popular and historic English resorts, and juxtaposes these with images from the continental Mediterranean resort of the Côte d’Azur.
The two collections of observational photographs, taken five years apart in the 1970’s, reflect upon the two different seaside settings and explore the cultural backdrop and contrasting behaviours of holidaymakers.
The exhibition takes place at the gallery from Saturday May 20 – August 19 2017.
