Foto8 Publishers : Maurice Broomfield Monograph - pioneer of British industrial and architectural photography

Foto8 have published British photographer Maurice Broomfield’s first monograph. His colour, and black and white photographs taken during the 1950s and 60s, are a unique of post-war heavy industry and urban regeneration in Britain. Employing strong lighting and form, the resulting photographs capture the dramatic atmosphere of industry in “pre-Thatcher”, “pre-Health and Safety” Britain.

Now in his 95th year, Maurice Broomfield is recognised as one of the first industrial and architectural photographers to use his corporate commissions around the globe to make visionary photographic studies of the workers in their environments.

Maurice Broomfield comments: “I enjoy photographing people at work, and the many experiences whilst doing this have enriched my life. To be living on this planet, is to me, the greatest gift possible.”

“Maurice Broomfield Photographs gathers together some of his finest images, highlighting their precious status as important records that can also be enjoyed as the work of a most discerning artistic eye.” Martin Barnes, Senior Curator of Photographs, Victoria and Albert Museum
