The Home Front by Melanie Friend

The Home Front explores the links between militarism, marketing and entertainment. Created over a four year period and for the first time on public display, this exhibition brings together the beautiful images of photographer Melanie Friend.
The Home Front consists of three related photographic projects, which when placed together explore the general public’s experience of war. Melanie Friend has taken the original approach of  focusing on public air shows that take place at Royal Air Force bases and in the skies above seaside resorts.

A touring exhibition commissioned by Impressions Gallery, curated by Pippa Oldfield.


Impressions Gallery, Bradford. 14th September – 23rd November
