VENUE: CENTRE FOR BRITISH PHOTOGRAPHY
Film director Rob West in conversation with James Hyman about Picture Post magazine to coincide with the Centre for British Photography exhibition The English at Home. This will be followed by a special screening of Picture Stories.
Picture Post was Britain's best-selling weekly magazine during the 1940s and early 50s. Through its picture stories, Picture Post pioneered a completely new approach to the portrayal of British life, and in doing so helped to shape modern British photography.
PICTURE STORIES, a feature-length documentary, explores that revolution through the eyes of some of Britain’s leading documentary and street photographers, and through archive interviews with Picture Post photographers, writers and editors.
