Copper Horses by Chris Harrison

This is the first opportunity to see this new exhibition, which through a large body of work explores a personal view of identity, class, British industry and Chris Harrison’s relationship with his father.

Chris Harrison has produced seventy-five images depicting various artefacts and landscapes from his father’s time as an industrial working in Jarrow, Tyne and Wear. Photographs include a micrometer, a set of dominoes and the type of machinery his father would have worked on from aged fifteen years old until retirement.

The exhibition marks the end of the photographer’s tenure as the 16th Bradford Fellow. Established in 1985, the Fellowship in Photography is a partnership between Bradford College, the University of Bradford and the National Media Museum.

All printing, mounting and framing has been produced by Spectrum Photographic.
