Magnum Photos & Multistory present 'Open for Business'

20 January 2014
Metro is delighted to have worked with International photography co-operative Magnum Photos and West Midlands based arts organisation Multistory on an exciting and comprehensive documentation of contemporary British manufacturing.  Working with a consortium of venues across the UK ‘Open for Business’ records success stories, large and small, that reflect Britain’s changing industrial and cultural heritage.

The project started back in February 2013 and aims to tell the story of British manufacturing through the unique international perspective of nine Magnum photographers. During this period of great economic instability there has never been a more relevant time to explore the condition of Britain’s manufacturing future, its current landscape and its effect on people, community and culture.

Magnum photographers Stuart Franklin, David Hurn, Peter Marlow, Martin Parr, Mark Power and Chris Steele-Perkins, Alessandra Sanguinetti, Bruce Gilden  and Jonas Bendiksen visited over one hundred workplaces across the UK; from one-man businesses to FTSE 100 companies. Their images take us from traditional, handmade crafts to modern, intelligent automation; from foundries and assembly lines to research laboratories and high tech cleanrooms, showing an economic sector of extraordinary resistance and diversity

Metro has produced, finished and framed over a hundred C-type prints for the exhibition which opens to the public on Friday 31 January 2014 at the National Media Museum, Bradford and continues in a tour around the UK throughout 2014 and into 2015.
