Each section of the collection has been explored to share some intriguing items; from paintings and decorative art, to costume and social history.

Daisy GoodallFocus on Family

Bluestairs Community Gallery
Saturday 16 February to Sunday 23 June 2019

Images tell stories and the experience of photography gives us so much more than the photograph.

Photography students from Pendleton Sixth Form College explore traditional methods of film and darkroom-based imagery. Working with relatives they collaborate to document family moments, holidays, activities and days out.

The students will curate an exhibition which not only captures the photographs they have taken, but also the images taken by the relatives they work with. This exhibition with family at the heart explores different generations working together, a real focus on family.
