Volume 44 now available - Bristol & Somerset Vanishing Lives
the full catalogue of a photographic exhibition next showing in Wells
15th January to end of February 2014
Readers who saw our exhibition Rambles... from the Darkroom will know what to expect of a Reece Winstone exhibition. At the Royal West of England Academy in Bristol we are showing 150 photographs of Reece’s own photo-journalism from 1930 to the 1960s, culled from his coverage of and contrasting life in Bristol and Somerset. The photography is as topical and engaging as ever.
It’s a wide-ranging selection, which comes with a comprehensive catalogue as our Volume 44 of the series. The exhibition is free at Wells & Mendip Museum and is will be open Monday to Saturdays 11.00am to 4.00pm. For details of a talk and walk-round the exhibition with John Winstone provisionally timed at 2.30pm 25th January please telephone the Museum on 01749-673477.
Readers unable to visit may purchase Bristol & Somerset: Vanishing Lives from us direct at £14.95 post-paid. Cheques payable to Reece Winstone Archive please.
From the visitor’s book:
‘So important for Bristol & district they deserve a permanent display of their own’
‘This display shows what culturally has been lost in the dubious race for progress’
& Dr Robert Dunning, contributor to the catalogue:
‘A remarkable selection from a remarkable Archive covering three decades or so of crucial change’
